Magic stays top in London

Bauer Media's Magic 105.4 continues to attract the most commercial listeners in the capital with over two million people tuning in.

But former favourite Capital FM can claim the highest commercial share in London, with six per cent, compared to Magic's 5.9 per cent.

In terms of listeners, the top three are Magic (2,005,000), Capital FM (1,904,000) and Heart 106.2 (1,885,000). Market share puts Capital on top and Magic at number two.

Kiss 100 is not far behind – with 1,667,000 listeners and a share of 4.1 – up 62,000 listeners from last quarter.

LBC has also increased its audience with LBC News 1152 enjoying a 44 per cent increase in reach, and an extra 103,000 listeners. LBC 97.3 attracted an additional 37,000 this quarter.

Elsewhere in London, a mixed fortune for the Asian stations, as Kismat Radio increases listeners by over 50 per cent this quarter, and Buzz Asia loses 28 per cent of its audience.

Smooth Radio climbs back up with more listeners than last quarter, but still less than a year ago, and the figures for Xfm show a similar pattern.
