Moyles sets new record

Chris Moyles has set a new record as the latest figures show he is pulling in 7.88 million listeners at breakfast.

He's helped the station gain a high of 11.74 million listeners per week in the quarter, compared to 10.76m last quarter and 11.07m last year.

Moyles fans were expecting him to have the number one breakfast show after Wogan's exit, but with Evans increasing the Radio 2 audience, this looks highly unlikely.

Other BBC services have also done well, Radio 3 has a weekly reach of 2.03 million listeners – up from last year’s 1.99m and last quarter’s 1.87m. The network’s share is 1.2 per cent (up from 1.1% both last year and last quarter).

Radio 4’s reach is 10.03m, up from last year (9.98m) and last quarter (9.84m). Share is 12.2 per cent, down slightly from 12.5% last quarter and last year.

BBC Radio 5 live – this week named Station of the Year at the Sony Radio Academy Awards – posted a record combined reach with sister station 5 live sports extra of 6.56 million listeners – compared to 6.32m last year and 6.19m last quarter. Share for Radio 5 live (inc. sports extra) is 4.7 per cent – from 4.6 per cent last quarter and 4.8 per cent last year.
