The latest radio ratings had some minor moving and shaking as 2GB’s breakfast took a hit.
In Sydney, Ben Fordham’s 2GB lost 2.6 per cent of the overall share, though it did maintain its position as top breakfast program. KIIS1065’s Kyle & Jackie O Show saw an increase of +1.1. Overall, 2GB still came out on top with 13.4 per cent of the share but lost 1.0 per cent from the last ratings.
Greg Byrnes, Nine Radio’s head of content said, “since taking on breakfast, Ben has managed to increase the show’s audience by share and cume, and also widen the program’s appeal with younger listeners. Ben is resetting how Sydneysiders start their day. He’s the future of Talk Radio and delivers on our strategy of live and local news, opinion and companionship”.
