• GfK Survey 2: February 9 – 29 and March 1 – April 4

• Return to status quo as Mix wins, but Nova still breakfast champ

Mix 94.5 12.6% (10.1%)

Cume 499,000 (+26,000)
2019 results: Best/worst
Best 10+ 15.6% (10.9%)
Best breakfast 15.1% (10.5%)

The station had the biggest share dip in survey one, but that has all returned and then some in survey two. 95.4 was well off the radar in survey one and it has made a staggering comeback. Breakfast with Clairsy, Matt and Kymba has recovered from 8.7% to 10.6%. So bad was that survey one result, that even the new figure is still its second lowest result in over four years. The results across the day would have been a relief – morning +2.6, afternoon +3.3 and drive +2.9. The station is now #1 morning and afternoon and #2 drive. 95.4 lifted 5.3 to 16.1% 55-64 where it ranks #1 and it closed the gap big time behind 96FM 40-54. SCA’s Dave Cameron’s forecast here last survey that the station would bounce back was spot on.
