hit40uk dumps CD sales

The commercial radio chart show hit40uk is to no longer reflect CD sales in its weekly countdown. This historic move comes after figures show 96 per cent of sales in the charts are downloads only.

The networked Top 40 chart show is hosted by Lucio Buffone and broadcasts on over 130 UK commercial radio stations every Sunday from 4pm to 7pm.

Paul Jackson, Group Programme Director, 95.8 Capital FM, The Hit Music Network, The Xfm Network and Hit40UK said: “Downloads have now become the driving force for record sales, as the statistics clearly show. It makes complete sense that the UK’s most listened to chart show reflects the changes in how people are listening to music. We constantly look to innovate and sit at the cutting edge of music taste and trends.”

Lucio Buffone, Hit40UK host said:” It’s exciting times for Hit40UK to be the first chart show to follow the downloads movement.”
