JNLR 2012 Q4 Local Radio Stations

The local stations are doing well and collectively they are up 24,000 or one percentage point. In general it’s a very static affair with Highland Radio still retaining a 65% reach in its franchise area. One notable movement was Galway Bay FM that managed to add 16,000 listeners and improve its reach to by 7% to 45%.

The franchises for Wicklow, Louth/Meath & Kildare always seem to struggle to get an audience being in the Dublin commuter belt and therefore lumped in with the capitals competition.
