JNLR 2016Q1 Top Thirty

All the top tables and in the interest of tracking the license fee money the book on book numbers are compared so that 2FM can be scrutinised. The Gains and Falls tables likewise are divided into the year on year and book on book. The metric for the gains and falls are subjectively based on actual listeners and not the percentage gain.

If it were percentages (we should really say) we’d be showering Ray D’Arcy with praise for a 19% increase in listeners year on year and also to Alison Curtis getting a 6% increase book on book.

RTE1 stole a march on the year on year gains taking all five slots. Book on book Alison Curtis spoils the party for them taking #5.

The year on year falls all have a similar hue with three of the slots reserved for Today FM programming. Book on book we begin to see the real story with 2FM taking the top two positions. It should be noted that 2FM can’t be compared year on year as the time slots are not comparable.
