Previous survey in brackets below.
2GB 13.4% (13.4%): No listener turn-off for Alan Jones in breakfast with share steady around 17% where he is 5.2 ahead of his nearest competitor. Ray Hadley was steady while the new Steve Price afternoon show was down 1.1 to 10.5% in his first survey after Chris Smith’s departure. Ben Fordham in drive was steady just under 9% while the only daypart increase this survey was John Stanley’s new evening show where share climbed from 13.4% to 14.5%.
smoothfm 95.3 9.2% (9.1%): This makes it eight surveys on top for smooth – 12 months as the FM market leader. All dayparts except evening nudged higher this survey with Bogart Torelli and Glenn Daniel seeing breakfast up 0.3 to 7.8%.
KIIS 1065 9.1% (8.2%): Kyle and Jackie O have turned it on again this survey, lifting breakfast share to 11.6% (+0.6) which is their second best result this year. Jackie O has a rare media double at the moment – perhaps fitting for the highest paid female entertainer in Australia. She is not only part of the biggest FM breakfast show in Sydney, she is also part of the #1 show on TV – The Masked Singer. Will and Woody were the biggest movers at the station with drive share up 1.1 to 10.0%. They now share top spot in drive in Sydney with Nova.
WSFM 8.2% (8.4%): Jonesy and Amanda were steady on 8.2% while afternoon remains the station highpoint where Steve Fitton has a share of 10.5%. Veteran broadcaster Mike Hammond ranks #2 FM in mornings on 8.7%.
Nova 96.9 7.6% (7.2%): The station has recorded its best share of the year, up 0.4 from the previous survey. Fitzy and Wippa are also performing well with their best share this year and their third best share of the last three years – 7.8%. Smallzy continues to rate well now at either end of the day (morning and evening) and next survey he will probably be celebrating 50 consecutive survey wins with the #1 national evening show. Kate, Tim and Marty lifted 0.5 to 10.0%, although they now share top spot with KIIS.
104.9 Triple M 6.7% (6.7%): Moonman is almost leading Triple M into unchartered territory. The station has just posted its equal best share since way back in survey 1, 2016 when it was on 7.1%. Breakfast sits on 6.4% which is the best for Moonman and his team of Gus Worland, Jess Eva and Chris Page. Evening share was up an impressive 1.3 to 8.3%.
104.1 2Day FM 4.5% (4.1%): Slight improvement here was due to higher shares in afternoon (+0.7 to 6.9%) and drive (Hughesy’s share up 1.5 to 5.8%). The new music breakfast show with Jamie Angel moved ever-so-slightly, up 0.1 to 2.5%.
2CH 1170 3.8% (3.4%): The station has posted its equal second best share this year despite breakfast falling to its lowest point since 2017 with 2.4%. Morning was a good story this survey with share up 0.8 to 4.2%.
Macquarie Sports 1.1% (1.1%): There was growth in morning and evening this survey. Drive was steady, while breakfast was down 0.3 to 1.3%.
Sky Sports Radio 0.8% (0.7%): Breakfast with Terry Kennedy and Laurie Daley was up again with share moving from 0.3% to 1.6% in two surveys. Breakfast is now on its equal best share since 2017.
