Industry ready for RAJAR Q2, 2013 results
The official radio listening figures have been delivered to radio stations across the UK, with full details going public at midnight.
This time round, Q2 2013, there are a number of changes, including for Planet Rock now it is owned by Bauer Media.
The national digital station will now incorporate figures for its FM frequency in the West Midlands, previously used by Kerrang! Radio. It also means we’ll see the final set of figures for Kerrang! before it changed name and moved to London.
Capital South Coast has a new TSA, going from 1.7m potential audience to 1.1m, and Celador’s total TSA increases from 3.25m to 3.36m.
Ones to watch this quarter include Nick Grimshaw settling in on BBC Radio 1 breakfast, TFM’s audience figures after the station started fully networking with Metro in the middle of this survey period, and Yorkshire Radio now it has closed.
The London market will also be one to watch for commercial radio, and we’ll find out if the most popular radio station in the UK, BBC Radio 2, continues to grow or starts pulling back. It’s also the second survey for the networked BBC Local Radio evening show.
Our easy to read graphs will be online at midnight at radiotoday.co.uk/rajar and the headline stories will appear right here.
