RTE1_2013_3

It’s a game of two halves here. The morning schedule all increased and the afternoon/evening programmes all dropped. The big gains over the surveys were for Ronan Collins (+24,000) and Pat Kenny/Séan O’Rourke (+13,000). The biggest faller was Liveline (-18,000) followed by Drivetime ((17,000). The well publicised departure of Pat Kenny from RTE took place over the summer  and he started to broadcast on Newstalk in September. That’s means that we have only one month in the survey with PK on Newstalk.
