JNLR 2015Q1 National Listenership

The latest edition of the JNLR for 2015 Q1 reveals, yet again, that radio is in a healthy position. Every day just over 3m people tune in to one or more radio station or 84% of the population. This is up some 1% on the previous year (2014 Q1) by some 37,000 listeners over the year but it’s up only marginally (3,000 listeners) on the previous book (2014Q4) While the underlying fortunes of individual stations have varied, the overall radion listenership has remained fairly static, deviating only between a reach of 85% and 83% since 2010.  Table : National Reach   Year On Year   Book on Book Station 15Q1 14Q1 +/- +/-   14Q4   +/- +/- Any Radio 3009 84% 2969 83% 40 1%   3006 84% 3 0% Any National 1670 46% 1618 45% 52 3%   1642 46% 28 2% Any RTE Radio 1241 35% 1217 34% 24 2%   1214 34% 27 2% Any RTE1/2FM/Lyric 1217 34% 1199 33% 18 2%   1193 33% 24 2% RTE Radio 1 843 23% 845 24% -2 0%   836 23% 7 1% RTE 2FM 400 11% 376 10% 24 6%   375 10% 25 7% RTE Lyric…

JNLR 2015Q1 Dublin Listenership

Radio in Dublin is up by 8% or 22,000 listeners on the previous twelve months and radio listenership now stands at 829,000 or a reach of 81% of its citizens. Book on book the increases are marginal growing only 3,000 in the twelve months. You will see from the graphic below that Dublin radio listenership has declined over the past few books, as has the national figure. At one point, between 2010 and 2011, the national and Dublin listenership were roughly at the same level, hovering around 86%. Since then the National listenership has slowly declined to 83%, whereas the fall in Dublin listenership has been more pronounced, dropping to 79% in 2014 but tracking back to 81% in this survey. When the dust settles I might return to that differential between the National picture and the Dublin one.  Table : Dublin Reach   Year On Year   Book on Book     15Q1 14Q1 +/- +/- Ch 14Q1 +/- +/- Ch RTE Radio 1 297 29% 275 27% 22 2% 8% 285 28% 12 1% 4% FM 104 184 18% 194 19% -10 -1% -5% 187 18% -3 0% -2% Newstalk 174 17% 137 14% 37 3% 27% 170…

JNLR 2015Q1 Top Thirty

The top thirty is a much loved part of the survey in many circles. This year is shows some interesting movements. Below are the tables and they are self explanatory. One interesting note: all of the top five falls all came from RTE1 whereas three of the top five to gain all came from Newstalk. Biggest fall for The Business dropping 16% on the year. Next is the slot that Ray D’Arcy now holds, however it has to be pointed out his name wasn’t on the seat for the majority of the twelve months. That lost 15%      Falls: Programme Station Day 15Q1 14Q1 +/-000 +/- % The Business RTE1 Sat 269 319 -50 -16% Mooney/Ray D’Arcy* RTE1 W/D 183 215 -32 -15% Sunday Miscellany RTE1 Sun 212 241 -29 -12% Sport RTE1 Sat 173 196 -23 -12% Drivetime RTE1 W/D 217 241 -24 -10% Tubridy’s time slot changed against the comparative, but not enough to apportion that to the huge 28% rise year on year, a 7% increase book on book and an increase of six places in the table. Breakfast on Newstalk added 26% on the year and Kenny gained 25%. The ‘Stormin’ Norman’ of radio, George Hook,…

JNLR 2015Q1 Station Programmes

Looking at the individual stations and their underlying output now. In looking at these just remember that they are year on year comparisons: 15Q1 V 14Q1. Then within the stations there may have been changes to the schedule in terms of personality or the program time slot. So on the surface some figures might look like there’s been a dramatic change (up or down) but you have to understand that it’s a full twelve month comparison. [widgetkit id=26]

JNLR 2015Q1 Regional/Local Stations

Here’s where we look at the local and regional franchises. Again, they are not comparatives as they simply can’t be compared to each other. I’ve made little or no comment as the data is self explanatory and my outpourings won’t add much! The local franchises (below the regional data) are over four years, just to give a bit of perspective on the figures. That particular table is sortable so just click on the heading to sort ascending and descending – hours of fun.        [widgetkit id=28]     000 % 000 % 000 % 000 % 000 % Station County 15Q1 14Q1 13Q1 12Q1 +/- +/- Mid West Radio Mayo 58 59% 62 62% 60 60% 63 61% -4 -3% Tipp FM Tipperary 44 36% 45 36% 54 43% 60 48% -1 0% South East Radio Wexford 47 41% 42 37% 43 38% 44 39% 5 4% Galway Bay FM Galway 66 34% 62 32% 84 43% 81 41% 4 2% Midlands 103FM Laois/Off/WM 62 32% 68 36% 66 35% 70 38% -6 -4% Shann/Northern Snd RN/LD/LM/CN/MN 89 46% 85 43% 82 41% 93 47% 4 3% Highland Radio Nth Donegal 61 61% 64 64% 68 67% 68 66% -3…

ABC Circulation March 2015

Cheltenham was the only event to bring a smile to tabloid newspaper executives with the Star and Sun adding a few copies this month on the back of the festival. Surprisingly The Mirror didn’t see any payout from the horses and they actually lost 300 odd copies month on month. The Daily star did exceptionally well adding 2,300 to its figure and the Sun added 1,400. But the uplift will be fleeting and April will see these sales disappear. The festival is a big investment for the tabloids in terms of resources and newsprint and each passing year it’s simply not having the same bang for its buck like in the ‘good times’. The strength of the tabloids means that the morning market increased by 1% on the month but are down 7% year on Year. The Sundays don’t get the lift that the morning titles do in March, with most of them showing a decline month on month. The Sun on Sunday, The People and Sunday Times are the exception to that rule this month. The Daily Star Sunday is feeling the strain as it has declined 18% year on year, the biggest decrease in the market after the…
