RT News and Current Affairs continues to bring in large numbers, with the News at One moving up from the 5th most popular programme in the country to the 3rd (Book on Book/Adults 15 ), while Morning Ireland maintains its position at the top of that. 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."

This latest survey shows that we are consolidating that position and that our key weekday programmes are the most listened to for this hard fought and hard to win age group. It is also worth noting that 2FM has 11 out of 20 of the top programmes in the country for Adults 15-34 and the top 4 are all 2FM shows."
