Bauer’s Kiss has increased its audience by almost 25%, landing just behind Capital and pushing Magic into 4th place based on weekly reach.

Capital has the most listeners for the second survey running, but remains in 5th place for average hours.

Heart adds an extra 175,000 listeners but remains in 3rd place whilst Magic drops to 4th place in the Weekly Reach chart despite also gaining listeners this quarter.

And it’s a milestone for LBC as the speech station gets over a million weekly listeners for the first time ever.
