JNLR Q2 2011 National Figures

The latest JNLR figures hold no real surprise in some quarters. Radio listenership, whilst still particularly healthy with a 85% penetration, has dropped back a little on last year’s comparable figures.

Most of the Donnybrook stations took a knock but 2FM seems to be firmly on the ropes at this point managing to drop 102,000 listeners in the twelve months. That equates to massive 20% of it’s listenership. You’d have to muse that were it not backed by public money what would its fate be?

Newstalk put on 21,000 listeners but outside them and RTE1 nobody managed to report a gain.
