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 +/- %

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, regained his foothold on a top thirty berth this time adding 14% on the year. Alison Curtis added 13%. No place in the top five for RTE programming.
