Talk is good for Global Radio

Whilst Capital FM celebrates its 0.1 per cent share lead in the London commercial radio market, sister station LBC now attracts over one million bums on seats nationwide.

In London, over 100,000 new listeners are also tuning in since this time three months ago.

The station is up 33 per cent year on year, with particular increases for certain shows, including James Whales' drivetime, adding 90,000 listeners.

Total hours are now standing at 12.68 million each week, up 38 per cent year-on-year. Nick Ferrari: "Obviously I couldn't be more thrilled if I was Cheryl Cole’s dresser – but let’s remember, this is like the London Marathon, not a sprint and I’m already thinking about the next mile or three."

At Heart, the network's flagship London station is down quarter on quarter on reach, share and hours, although not a major amount. Xfm continues to grow steadily in the London market and Choice FM has seen a significant leap in listeners, from 457,000 to 573,000 year on year.
