UK radio listening is growing

Radio listening has reached an all time high, with 45.8 million adults tuning in each week, according to the latest RAJAR figures out today.

The BBC still has the biggest share of listening at 56.3 per cent, but commercial radio has seen a year on year increase compared to the BBC's drop.

Andrew Harrison, chief executive of RadioCentre, the industry body for Commercial Radio said: “It is very encouraging to see that Commercial Radio continues to attract more and more listeners and local Commercial Radio in particular, has had another healthy quarter.

"Commercial Radio is increasingly being listened to via DAB and other digital platforms; with the Government's Digital Britain report due for publication shortly, which we hope will include a date for switchover, we look forward to that growth accelerating.”
