smoothfm 91.5 9.8%
Another survey at #1 FM for the station means Nova Entertainment is the place to go to buy airtime on the market-leading music stations in the two biggest radio markets. All timeslots hardly moved with breakfast with Mike Perso and Jennifer Hansen steady just over 8%.

Fifi, Fev and Byron remain the #1 FM breakfast show, with share dipping 0.6 to 9.0%. Best result here was afternoon up 1.0 to 11.5% – a timeslot which includes most of the Carrie and Tommy early drive show. Hughesy and Kate remain #1 drive with share up 0.5 to 11.0%.

Small recovery here too with share up in morning, afternoon and drive. The Hot Breakfast with Eddie, Luke and Wil was steady on 7.7%.
