RTE1 Listnership 2013_2

Individual shows on RTE1 show only small variations on the previous twelve months. Liveline dropped back by 7,000 and the other afternoon fell as well. Drivetime lost 12,000 and Arena lost 12,000 (there was a small shift in programming times after Drivetime between the two surveys which might distort the figures ever so slightly.

Newstalk Listnership 2013_2

Newstalk would have to be happy with the individual performances, with the Breakfast Show the only slot under scrutiny dropping back. Over the surveys the slot has been a myriad of musical chairs and thus different individuals trying to make their mark. On the bright site both Moncrieff and Dunne could be call to top of the class for a ‘star’.  The station’s biggest draw, Hook, added more listeners and the debacle that was off the ball still hasn’t been decided. The programme dropped 15% over the survey, four months of which was with the new format – post resignations.

Lyric_FM Listnership 2013_2

The first item to note is that all the numbers are from a low base and can make the percentage changes look extreme. But is still doesn’t mask that for Lyric it’s a bad survey and to only slot making any headway is Marty in the morning. The quarter hours would suggest that the afternoon segment is suffering the most.
