The third radio ratings survey is out for 2018, and B&T has once again provided you with a comprehensive analysis of which stations and shows were up, and which were down.
It seems the recently aired troubles of 2Day FM’s Em Rusciano and her brekkie team of Ed Kavalee and Grant Denyer (you can read all about them on B&T here, here, here, here, and here) have actually helped the show increase its market share by 0.5 per cent compared to the previous survey. This is on the back of two straight surveys of growth, not to mention.
Elsewhere in Sydney, Australian Radio Network’s WSFM has found itself back in positive territory after two straight market share drops in the first two surveys of 2018.
