Like the National picture, the Dublin one is dominated by the downturn in the overall radio listenership down to 77% or 800,000 people every day. This is down four points on the previous year and down 16,000 listeners on the previous book. The trend graphic is a stark picture of a declining listenership in the capital.

Out of the thirteen stations in Dublin, only three managed an increased book on book figure and only two compared to twelve months ago.

RTE1, 98FM and TXFM were the only stations to add numbers book on book which can’t be the most positive thing for Dublin Radio. From a research perspective, the sample sizes were the same in bothe books so there’s no parachute there.

RTE1 still dominates with 297,000 listeners (28%) up fractionally at 1,000 listeners on the last book but down 5,000 on the year.

The biggest faller in numbers this book was FM104, down 14,000 to 174,000 on the book and a 20,000 drop in the year. This was followed by Newstalk down 10,000 (-6%) to 144,000 and down 26,000 one the previous year. Today FM fell by 9,000 to 70,000 in the capital and this drops them below Q102 and into 7th spot.

2FM lost a further 12% (7,000) to move to 51,000 listeners. It shunts them below Sunshine for the first time and pushes them into 9th position in Dublin. Spin fell 7,000 to 133,000 and dropped 14,000 during the year.
