JNLR 2012-3 National Programs Listnership

The overall figures for any station will only reflect the individual programmes they broadcast. Throughout the day stations will have different audience levels depending on what the population is doing and for some stations what the competition is at.

As you can see for the chart below that looks at all adults listening to all radio, its ramps up very rapidly in the morning and then tails off as the day drifts by. 

Radio day

Without going into a super analysis of each quarter hour segment, I’ll highlight the program slots for each of the four main National radio stations and sincere apologies to Lyric as time caught up here.  If I get a chance to look at this retrospectively, I will.
