Two million radio listeners are listening to RT every week

The latest JNLR listenership survey has revealed that two million people, 52% of all Adults 15 , are tuning in every week to RT 's radio services.

RT Radio 1 is the only radio station in the country with a weekly reach of over 1 million people, with 1,372,000 tuning in ( 3,000 BOB). RT Radio 1 has seen its adult market share increase from 21.8% to 22.1% ( .3pts) due to increases in the 35-54 audience.

RT 2FM has a weekly reach figure of 839,000/22% of Adults 15 while RT lyric fm has 273,000 listeners on a weekly basis making a slight change in weekday market share, now 1.8% ( .1pts).

RT Radio 1:

The only Irish Radio Station with a weekly reach of over 1 million

RT Radio 1 increases its market share to 22.1%

Peter Woods, Managing Editor, RT Radio 1 says, A solid book for RT Radio 1 with our programmes performing well across the board. We're particularly happy with the gains for Ryan Tubridy and Ray D'Arcy. We're also very happy to have increased our market share overall, driven by gains in our key demographics. All of this is a tribute to our unparalleled rota of presenters and their hard working teams.

Morning Ireland increases listenership BOB with 424,000 tuning in each morning.

The Marian Finucane Show broadcasts to 374,000 listeners every Saturday ( 45,000 YOY), with 311,000 tuning in on Sunday mornings.

Liveline with Joe Duffy draws 372,000 listeners Monday to Friday; the second most listened to weekday radio programme in Ireland.

The Ryan Tubridy Show has seen an increase of 4,000 listeners in this book bringing his reach to 332,000 ( 4,000 BOB and 21,000 YOY).

The Ray D'Arcy Show moves up the Top 20 A15 table with 223,000 listeners ( 3,000 BOB and 4,000 YOY) tuning in weekday afternoons from 3pm.

News at One broadcast to 329,000 listeners every weekday.

Today with Sean O'Rourke has made gains YOY, with 319,000 listeners each weekday morning ( 12,000 YOY).

Weeknights from 8pm see 48,000 people tuning in to The John Creedon Show ( 7,000 YOY).

Countrywide makes gains of 4,000 listeners BOB with 189,000 people waking up on Saturday mornings to Damien O'Reilly.

Saturday nights on RT Radio 1 shows increases for C il House, gaining 4,000 BOB and 2,000 YOY with 21,000 listeners.

RT 2fm has a weekly reach figure of 839,000/22% of adults 15

RT 2fm time blocks are not comparable Book on Book and Year on Year due to recent schedule change.

Dan Healy, Head of RT Radio Strategy and RT 2FM says, 2FM has experienced a minor change in our JNLR following the recent schedule change. This listenership survey, which measures the 12 months to June 2019, only captures 4 weeks of the new schedule so we will have to wait until later in the year to have a view of how it is performing and it will be this time next year when we have a full 12 month picture.

We are very pleased with how everything sounds on the new schedule. We knew for certain what Tracy Clifford (1pm to 3pm) and Jenny Grenne (3pm to 6pm) would sound like as they are great presenters, both whom have done so well for the station over the past 4 to 5 years.

We also knew that Doireann and Eoghan would create a brilliant show but the speed in which the programme has developed is a huge credit to them and their production team.

Jennifer Zamparelli is creating a new genre of speech radio from 9am and the listener reaction is stunning. New voices are being heard and topics are been explored in a way not heard on Irish radio before.

This is an exciting time for 2FM and we are all working hard to continue to serve young audiences in Ireland in an informative, entertaining and innovative way and I haven't even mentioned the amazing music played each day with Irish artists front and centre!

RT lyric fm

RT lyric fm has a weekday market share of 1.8% for adults 15

Aod n O'Dubhghaill, Head of RT lyric fm says: The listening figures in this book for RT lyric fm confirms the place that quality classical music has for audiences on the island of Ireland. As we celebrate 20 years on air, we at RT lyric fm are honoured to be the broadcast custodians of that important music tradition .

Lorcan Murray's Classic Drive reaches 44,000 adults 15 ( 5,000 BOB)
