Yes, the second radio ratings survey is out for 2018, and like always, B&T has summarised all you need to know from the numerous tables issued by GfK, on behalf of Commercial Radio Australia.

After a lacklustre performance in the first survey of 2018, KIIS FM picked up its game in Sydney, with both its brekkie and drive teams claiming the mantle of number one on the FM frequency. However, the latest ratings news wasn’t so good for its sister station, WSFM.

Elsewhere in Sydney, Southern Cross Austereo’s 2Day FM has continued its radio ratings resurgence in the brekkie slot, with hosts Em Rusciano, Ed Kavalee and Grant Denyer seeing even greater growth in their ratings from the last survey – up 1.0 per cent to 4.4 per cent.

Meanwhile, SCA’s strategy of having two drive teams is paying off, with Carrie & Tommy and Hughesy & Kate again owning the slot with another strong ratings performance.

As for KIIS FM’s new Melbourne brekkie duo Jase & PJ, they continued their ratings decline, down 0.1 per cent to 5.0 per cent.

Here’s a thorough city-by-city breakdown of the ratings…

SYDNEY

Macquarie’s 2GB has lost a little bit of its leading overall market share from the first survey of 2018, down 0.3 per cent to 11.5 per cent, while ARN’s KIIS 1065 has moved back up into the top three, claiming second place (and first in the FM standings) with a 1.4 per cent share jump to 9.5 per cent.

NOVA Entertainment’s smoothfm held onto third spot overall with a flat market share of 8.5 per cent.

The ratings news was not so good though for WSFM, with its overall market share falling 0.6 per cent overall to 8.4 per cent, following on from last survey’s 0.7 per cent drop. Both the brekkie (Jonesy & Amanda) and drive shows for the station saw a 0.9 per cent ratings drop.
