There has been a significant jump in the number of listeners tuning in to BBC Radio Northampton, according to the latest figures released today by Rajar.
Figures show that in the last quarter of 2005, 107,000 people listened each week ? an extra 15,000 listeners in the Northamptonshire region, compared to the same time the previous year.
In addition, the audience reach rose from 20.9 per cent to 24.0% over the same period ? which means that nearly a quarter of the adult population in Northamptonshire is tuning in to the station each week.
Laura Moss, Managing Editor, Radio Northampton, says: “This really is fantastic news.
“We would like to thank each and every one of our listeners for their continued support and we welcome the 15,000 people who have joined us over the past year.
“Our success is testament to the hard work of all of our presenters and every member of the BBC Radio Northampton team.”
BBC Radio Northampton broadcasts on 104.2 and 103.6 FM.
