Could the station really be considering returning to the PMFM brand after the nostalgia kick seems to be working at B105 and SAFM? This wasn’t a great survey with breakfast down 2.7 to 7.4% and smaller falls right across the day. The survey 6 crazy demo share swings here were 10-17 (halving from 28% to 14%) and a smaller 7.7 correction 18-24 representing a loss of a third of the audience.

6PR 8.5% (7.5%)

Share jumped dramatically for Steve and Baz in breakfast with the Lord Mayor’s race no doubt helping build awareness. Covid might have helped too, although ABC Perth breakfast was steady this survey. 6PR morning and afternoon also recorded good growth. Share of listening 40-54 doubled from 5.7% to 10.3%,
