BBC Radio Cornwall has attracted 1,000 new listeners over the last year, according to the latest audience figures issued by Rajar. The figures show the station now has an average weekly audience of 152,000 listeners.
The survey also measures the average amount of time people spend listening to the station each week. Radio Cornwall’s average is now the highest of any BBC local radio station across the UK with listeners clocking up 15.7 hours per week, which is two hours a week up since December 2005.
Rajar also proved once again that James Churchfield’s breakfast programme is the most popular breakfast programme in Cornwall.
James says: “We’re hugely privileged to have a great range of listeners who every day tell us entertaining stories about life and living in Cornwall. “Our success is a team effort, and the listeners are part of our team.”
