Healthy figures for Big City networks

Bauer Radio's FM stations outside London enjoyed several sets of much improved results across the original Big City stations, and in Scotland too.

There were disappointing books for Radio Aire and Hallam FM, while Metro Radio saw its average reach drop below 400,000 for the first time ever, as well as new lows in hours and share.

Key 103 now attracts 563,000 listeners every week – the highest number since March 2006 – while Rock FM saw an increase over three months from 2 million hours to 2.48 million hours – an increase of nearly 25 per cent.

Heritage stations Clyde 1 and Forth 1 showed substantial improvement over the last quarter; both stations showed significant increases in reach, total hours and market share.

Meanwhile Metro Radio saw its weekly reach slump to 398,000, total hours drop to 3.09 million and market share at 11 per cent – all record lows for the north east station.
