Official listening figures for RAJAR Q1 2019 have been delivered to participating radio stations across the UK.
The numbers are under embargo till midnight, and RadioToday will once again bring you the headlines as soon as the embargo has been lifted.
It is widely expected that Virgin Radio will be in for a sharp increase, following Chris joining the station. The above image shows the streaming stats from Virgin Radio, with a small peak on the announcement, followed by the first show.
This was displayed by News UK’s Group Content Director – Music Radio, Francis Currie at the recent Radiodays Europe event.
It’s also the first breakfast show RAJAR for Lauren Laverne on 6 Music and Tom Green and Daisy Maskell on KISS FM. Virgin Chilled and Virgin Anthems will also get their first numbers, along with “Greatest Hits Radio, Love Sport, Nation Radio Scotland and The Voice.
In other changes this quarter, 2BR is now Capital Lancashire, Free Radio (Herefordshire & Worcestershire) is now Hits Radio Brand (Herefordshire & Worcestershire) and Jack Radio is now JACK Radio.
RIGHT. 60 of you have guessed a weekly reach figure for Virgin Radio tomorrow. The 'book' is still open until 10.29am tomorrow. Prize for the closest! TWEET ME.
SO FAR: https://t.co/GOS2liYBKN
