The results of the Survey 3 radio ratings from GfK, the official radio ratings provider to Commercial Radio Australia (CRA) have been released.
While the 2GB share slipped to 12.8 from 14.3 in the last survey, it remained ahead of the pack. Breakfast was 15.7-18.9.
3AW was 15.3 to 15.8. For breakfast, the station was 19.4-18.9.
Nine Radio chief content officer Greg Byrnes said the results reflected a strong start to 2022.
“After our best start to the year, we have attracted even more listeners during this survey period,” he said.
“The year-over-year result is impressive given that 2GB is up over 21%, 4BC up 15% and 3AW up nearly 10%. In Sydney, Ben Fordham and Ray Hadley are well on their way to ahead of last year.
“In Melbourne, Ross and Russ and Neil Mitchell have been successful in retaining the massive numbers of people who tune in every morning. We are committed to providing the best live, local news and opinion in the country and thank our listeners for their loyalty.”
ARN: “The network achieved another record result and continues to dominate major metro markets with #1FM stations in Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide. In Melbourne, GOLD104.3 achieved record results with more listeners than any another station in Australia, as well as #1 results in key time slots; and on its fourth anniversary, The Christian O’Connell Show takes the #1FM position for the 16e subsequent investigation.
“In Sydney, ARN maintains its dominance in Breakfast with KIIS 1065’s Kyle & Jackie O and WSFM’s Jonesy & Amanda finishing at #1 and #2 respectively. AND in Adelaide, ARN takes the duopoly with Mix102.3 station #1FM and Cruise1323 commercial AM station #1.”
Duncan Campbell, ARN’s Chief Content Officer: “Creating locally relevant content will always be at the heart of what we do, and the results speak for themselves.
“It’s particularly pleasing to see such strong results in Melbourne with The Christian O’Connell show, about to celebrate its fourth anniversary, leading the station to record results.
“Our content teams have an unparalleled understanding of their audience and we look forward to continuing to deliver the best radio in the country while evolving to meet listener appetites with innovations like our podcast to spread the strategy that is currently unfolding. Saturday morning.”
