Whilst Emap are celebrating the top two spots in London, based on market share, the Big City network has taken a bit of a dip. Overall figures are down slightly but some individual stations such as Rock FM and TFM Radio lose average hours. Magic, on the other hand show a slight rise in listeners.
TFM is down is total and average hours, but gains in reach, whilst Rock FM is down to eight per cent audience share (from 10.7 a year ago). Some Big City stations do show an increase, such as Hallam FM gaining 11,000 more listeners and Metro Radio up in hours.
The Magic network figures are up, with some good increases for individual stations. Kerrang! has also attracted more listeners to the 105.2 FM service in the West Midlands.
A new RAJAR measuring specification was introduced for the latest results. These figures do not take in to account possible changes in TSA and are offered only as a guide.
