Radio Ratings: Kyle & Jackie O Are Hot On Ben Fordham’s Winning Trail

Figures from 2022’s third GfK Radio Ratings Metro & DAB+ have just been released, with some very surprising – and not so surprising – results.

In the not-so-surprising news, Ben Fordham continued his dominance over Sydney, with 2GB’s wonder-boy claiming first place in the breakfast ratings, though he’s beginning to feel the heat from Kyle & Jackie O as the KIIS 106.5 duo continue to ride the growth wave from last month – surely it can’t help that Kyle’s discussing his impending fatherhood.

In Melbourne, 3AW once again reigned supreme, claiming the top spot and seeing a small upswing. Meanwhile, GOLD 104.3’s Christian O’Connell Breakfast Show, saw a strong upswing in the breakfast slow not enough to dethrone 3AW but it could make the next radio ratings pretty interesting.

In Melbourne’s Drive slot, 3AW’s Drive With Tom Elliott reclaimed his number one seat from Gold’s Dave Higgins.

Adelaide saw the  ABC ADE hold onto the top spot. However, there was some reshuffling in Adelaide with NOVA91.9’s Kate, Tim & Joel, getting beat by Carrie and Tommy in the drive slot. Still, Kate, Tim & Joel still snagged the number two spot.

In Perth, the competition was fierce but NOVA93.7 managed to come out on top, while their Kate, Tim & Joel show was also able to main their first place in the drive ratings – the third time in a row!

Up north in Brisbane, NOVA nabbed the first spot, but KIIS 97.3 beat out B105 to snag the second spot.

All in all, there weren’t too many changes or shakes up this month!
