Australian Radio Network has claimed the number one FM network ranking across the nation once again, thanks in part to its Sydney stations, KIIS 1065 and WSFM, dominating the breakfast slot.

GfK, the official provider of radio ratings for Commercial Radio Australia, today released its sixth survey for the year, which showed that KIIS 1065’s Kyle & Jackie O have some serious competition in WSFM’s Jonesy & Amanda, with the two brekkie radio teams sharing the spoils in Sydney.

WSFM’s resurgence to the top comes after Jonesy & Amanda overtook Nova’s Fitzy & Whippa in the previous ratings survey to place second.

Meanwhile, the latest ratings news wasn’t so good for Nova’s Kate, Tim & Marty in both the Sydney and Melbourne drive slots.

The trio lost 1.5 per cent market share in Sydney, surrendered top spot Macquarie Radio Network’s 2GB to Macquarie Radio Network’s 2GB. An in Melbourne, they were unable to hold on to third place thanks to solid market share growth for smoothfm and FOX FM’s Hamish & Andy.

Here’s a breakdown of who was up and who was down in each of the metro radio markets:
