Strong news stories over the last three months, and exceptional coverage during major events like Storm Emma, are showing in the listenership figures."

"I am really happy to see that RT retains its position, holding the top twenty radio programmes in the country. RT Radio 1 leads with 21.5% of the market share, the only station with a weekly reach of over one million."

"Life continues to sound better on RT lyric fm where 278,000 listeners are tuning in weekly, the station delivers consistently across the day from Marty in the Morning to driving home with Lorcan Murray, and into the night."
