Nine Radio has revealed its digital streaming numbers, showcasing a surge since the latest COVID-19 lockdowns.

Nine Radio’s talk stations 2GB, 3AW, 4BC, 6PR live show the network achieving record numbers and double-digit growth in July, according to figures released today.

The radio network achieved more than 11 million streams in the month of July, up 11 per cent on June, along with growth in total listening hours and total cumulative audience.

The surge comes as states along the eastern seaboard endure COVID lockdowns and listeners seem to be turning to Nine’s talk radio stations for the latest news.

Nine’s head of digital Audio Hayley Bourne said:  “This is the first time we’ve released a clear digital snapshot to market and what you can see through 11 million stream starts with an average session time of 59 minutes, is a highly engaged and valuable audience.

“COVID and the recent lockdowns played a role in last month’s streaming growth especially during traditional workday hours.

“Ray Hadley’s decision to broadcast the NSW Premier’s media conference at 11am each day on 2GB has seen a 48 per cent increase in stream starts of his program.

“These numbers reinforce the fact that talk radio with its live and local nature, is highly sought-after content, through traditional or digital platforms.”

Nine intends to release regular digital audio snapshots going forward.
