Abandoned services performing
The latest RAJAR figures give a tantalizing glimpse into what could have been for GCap Media.
Despite no marketing and skeleton staff, the remnants of GCap's digital portfolio performed well in the latest figures.
The now-independently owned Planet Rock saw its weekly reach increase from 563,000 to 585,000 and an improvement in average hours which saw the station's total hours pass four million.
Chill increased both its audience and hours and now accounts for 1.01 million listening hours every week. While Fun Radio lost audience, its average hours increased from 9.9 to 14.6 – the best of any solus digital service.
Meanwhile at Bauer, The Hits continued to dominate all digital listening with 1.477 million listeners, a loss of nearly 100,000 listeners.
Heat Radio also lost reach and hours, while total listening slid back from 1.43 million hours to 1.2 million hours.
