There’s too much data here – so I’m going to simply provide the numbers and you can extrapolate what you want from it. In the four regions there’s still a job to do to catch up with the “home locals” – which, in most cases are very dominant. On a positive note: three out of four regional stations beat RTE1 into second position. There’s also a table of all the ‘franchises’ – it’s interesting to see the totality of the radio market and how they all stand – comparisons are unwise as the different franchises have different populations etc.
There were some good wins for RTE1 occupying the top five slots in the programmes that gained year on year and three of them in the weekend schedule. They also hold the top five book on book – but the emphasis there is on the weekday schedule. Today FM hold three of the five faller’s berths looking at them year on year. The main Top 30 Table below is sortable – just click on the heading and it will sort ascending and then descending (on a second click).

Here we have a look at the different stations and their weekday offerings. This time out the year on year and book on book are explored.
