RAJAR: Record for talkSPORT shows

Former television presenters Keys and Gray are delivering a record number of listeners for talkSPORT’s mid-morning slot.

The station’s Q1 RAJAR remains the same at 3.2m listeners but three weekday shows now reach over 1 million.

In addition, Weekend Breakfast, Matchday Live and Sunday Exclusive have all recorded their highest ever listening figures.

Moz Dee, talkSPORT Programme Director said: “I’m really proud of all the presenters and all production teams who have continued to attract more listeners to their various shows. The Gold Sony Award for Keys & Gray proved how successful their show has become and these figures clearly back that up. With Euro 2012 just around the corner, we’re in great shape to bring live commentary of every game to our listeners.”

Scott Taunton, talkSPORT’s Chief Executive, said: “Over the past few months talkSPORT has announced a move to 24 hour sports coverage as well as our international expansion and these results show that we’re in the best position for a busy summer of sport and next season’s Barclays Premier League. Record figures across so many shows are a great achievement for everyone involved.”

Elsewhere at UTV, Juice FM, which won a Station of the Year Gold award this week at the Sonys, has posted a big increase in both listeners and hours.

Listening hours have increased by 78% year on year to go through the two million hours mark for the first time in the station’s history. Similarly, adult weekly reach has grown by 17% to surpass the 200,000 mark and set a new listening record of 204,000 every week.

Graham Sarath, Station Director, said: “These excellent figures really reflect the hard work that we’ve put in to produce quality programming, and really give listeners what they want. It has been an incredible week for Juice FM, as a Sony Award is the highest accolade in the radio industry and to have our hard work recognised in that way is very gratifying.”
