Most London stations lose listeners in Q2

All the top commercial and BBC radio stations in London have lost listeners in the latest RAJAR data, compared with three months ago.

Capital FM keeps the highest reach at 2.072m, whilst Heart London has the highest share at 5.7%.

In terms of reach, Magic 105.4 takes second place with 1.951m, Heart 3rd with 1.798m and Kiss back to 4th place with 1.740m.

Share wise, it’s a different story with Heart on top, followed by Magic, Kiss then Capital.

BBC Radio 4 remains the most listened to radio station in the Capital, although its reach is down nine per cent to 2.726m listeners. It still has a huge 17% share, followed by BBC Radio 2 with 2.202m listeners and 12% share.

It’s bad news for other London stations too with Kismat Radio dropping by 50% and Xfm London by 30% in 12 months, and Smooth Radio London recording its worst ever figure with just 385,000 listeners.
