Smooth reaches highest ever

Three of GMG's six Smooth Radio stations have recorded their biggest ever audience figures, during what will be their last quarter with local programmes.

Smooth Radio North East, North West and Glasgow are all at their highest, whilst the group reports almost five million listeners in total.

Rock Radio in Glasgow (Paisley) and Manchester are also celebrating an increase in both share and reach, whilst all Real Radio stations except Yorkshire are up.

GMG Radio Chief Executive Stuart Taylor said: “We’ve seen impressive and encouraging performances from our three brands across the last quarter, with growth in reach and hours for many stations. As we prepare to deliver Smooth Radio across the UK as a truly national brand it’s great to see that not only are new listeners tuning in, but they clearly like what they hear. We’re looking forward to delivering that music to more areas of the UK from October.

"Our market leading Real Radio Scotland and Wales have performed exceptionally well and the whole Real Radio Network has added over 100,000 listeners in the last quarter.”
