Nova 93.7 13.9%
The station has blitzed the ratings and set some records along the way. This is the station’s second consecutive #1 survey and it again has the biggest cume audience with 568,000. In breakfast Nathan, Nat and Shaun also won a second consecutive survey, this time with a record share of 15.0%. Kate, Tim & Marty, plus Fitzy & Wippa, rank #1 between 4-7pm and have the biggest cume – 311,000. Smallzy has keen followers out West too with a winning evening share of 14.6%.
Mix 94.5 13.7%
The station has to settle for second place for a second time and it has posted consecutive shares under 14% for the first time in over three years. Breakfast with Clairsy, Matt & Kymba is now 2.4 behind the market leader. Morning and afternoon are timeslot champs while drive with The Rush Hour with Lisa and Pete and then Kennedy Molloy ranks #2 behind Nova.
Hit 92.9 10.6%
The new Heidi, Xavier and Ryan breakfast show had a good survey, up 0.9 and back into double figures. Hughesy and Kate rank #3 drive but they have narrowed the gap between their closest competitor, sister station Mix.
Although overall share was down 0.5, Steve and Baz in breakfast saw share stay steady on 11.1%, their equal best result in 18 months. All other dayparts reported drops between 1.8 and 0.1.
Not a great survey with falls right across the day. The newish breakfast show with Paul & Lise dipped 1.2 to 6.8%, which is the second-lowest result in 18 months. Former locals Will and Woody have a share of 6.1% in drive, half the share (or lower) than the other FM drive shows.
A flat survey with share steady. Only blemish was a drop of a point in breakfast, which was offset by small rises in morning, afternoon and drive.
