We are a nation of audiophiles and so, despite the ever-increasing competition for people’s time and the growing range of online audio providers, radio is thriving in the digital age. I’m delighted that the BBC’s distinctive portfolio of stations is proving so enduringly popular and helping the UK radio industry go from strength to strength.”

BBC Regional


Overall reach for Local Radio in England came in at 7.1m / 16.5% – stable year-on-year (6.9m / 16.4%) and last quarter (7.1m / 16.5%). This translates into an increase of 156,000 listeners on the year and 13,000 on the quarter.

Stations with an increase in audience include BBC Coventry and Warwickshire, up to 17% weekly reach from 11% last year, BBC Radio Cambridgeshire, now back up to 20% from 16% last year, and BBC Radio Cumbria.

David Holdsworth, Controller, BBC English Regions said: “This is a sure-footed, solid performance across BBC Local Radio in England, especially in what is a highly competitive market. These results reflect the fact that quality public service broadcasting continues to be highly valued by our listeners. I’m confident that we can continue to build on this performance in the long term.”


BBC Radio Scotland saw its latest radio listening figures fall by over ten per cent on the corresponding period 12 months previously, the station’s ‘reach’ between October and December in 2012 and the same period last year was down 12.7%, from an average 994,000 listeners to 868,000.

Audience increases have been recorded across the station’s live football, with exclusive Barclays Premier League commentary on Sunday afternoons achieving a 22% increase on the previous year.

talkSPORT Programme Director, Liam Fisher, said: “These figures are testament to the strength of our on-air talent and the new additions to this team which have included broadcasters Colin Murray and Johnny Vaughan and former sportsmen including David Ginola, Neil Warnock and Brian Moore. We broadcast 40 commentaries in this quarter and we know that live football is always a huge draw to talkSPORT listeners.”

Signal 1

Increased reach by 20% year-on-year, while listening hours increased 8% year-on-year and 20% quarter-on-quarter. This means that over the last three months the station has increased its listening hours by 470,000.

Swansea Sound & The Wave

Both posted increases across the board, increasing listener reach by 16% year-on-year and 4% quarter on quarter, and growing hours by 26% year-on-year and 1% quarter on quarter.

More people are listening to Radio Wave in Blackpool and for longer, the station has posted a 19% increase in the total number of listeners year-on-year. The station has also gained hours, with a year-on-year increase of 14%.

Wish, Wire FM and Tower FM

Wish, Wire FM and Tower FM all increased their listenership. Wish FM has done particularly well, with the station’s number of listeners up by 8% and the hours growing by 35%, both year on year.

Peak FM

Peak FM posted an increase in listeners of 11% year-on-year and an 8% increase quarter-on-quarter in the number hours people listen.

Juice FM
Juice FM gained both listeners and hours, increasing them both by 5% on the quarter.

Iain Fowler, Director of Local Radio for UTV Media (GB), said: “These figures are extremely pleasing as they show the resilience of UTV’s local stations in a competitive and difficult market. Our local stations all play an integral part in their communities, raising money for local charities and hosting events and we are proud that this has translated into making them an even better offering for listeners and advertisers alike.”

Bauer Radio

Nationally Bauer’s Passion Portfolio has reached 10m listeners for first time as Kiss gets five million listeners across the UK. Digitally, Bauer owns the top three most listened to commercial stations, with Absolute 80s, Planet Rock and Kisstory.

Key 103

Key 103 has recovered from recent all-time low figures and is now back up to 570,000 listeners from 395,000 three months ago

Wave 105

Wave 105 recorded its best performance for a decade for both reach and hours, reaching 438,000 listeners.

Absolute Radio

Bauer’s new station Absolute Radio has regained listeners this quarter to take it back to where it was this time last year – with 1.76m listeners.
Absolute 80s is the most listened to commercial digital-only station with 1.18 million listeners, up 33% year-on-year, with sister station Absolute Radio 90s also up 30% year-on-year.

Christian O’Connell added 55,000 listeners compared to the corresponding three months in 2012 and expanded his numbers from the previous quarter by an even more impressive 109,000 to take his reach up to 1.44 million.

Magic 105.3 & Kiss 100

In London, Magic and Kiss are down in numbers (as are most FM stations) with Kiss dropping from 1.97m to 1.82m listeners and Magic going from 1.96m to 1.75m.

Kiss was up in their breakfast numbers, adding 176,000 followers over the course of the year to take reach up to 1.79 million and in London it remains only behind Capital in terms of commercial radio breakfast shows. Kiss’s  audience in the city in the time-slot grew by 147,000 between quarters to 824,000 as Capital’s breakfast show rose to 1.19 million.

Kiss Fresh

Kiss Fresh hasn’t had the automatic inheritance of listeners it might have expected from Smash Hits on digital platforms, with the service reporting a drop from 887k to 387k weekly listeners. It is a complete change of name and format though so its is not completely comparable. The service is listed by RAJAR as Kiss Fresh (formerly Smash Hits).

Steve Parkinson, Managing Director, Bauer Radio London, said: “Breaking the 10 million listener mark is a great moment for the Passion Portfolio teams. The ongoing national success of Kiss plays a big part in this, with its new channels Kisstory and Kiss Fresh performing way beyond expectations. The programming teams are rightly celebrating having five out of the top ten most popular digital stations in the UK.”

Dee Ford, Group Managing Director Radio, Bauer Media, said: “With impressive growth from Kiss and Planet Rock to Absolute Radio and Key 103, Bauer’s commercial audience continues to grow, helping our commercial partners get just what they need from one media owner – delivery of big, high-impact campaigns that reach millions of potential consumers. Through our ambitious digital strategy, we can also offer brands targeted communications across a range of demographics.”

Bauer Scotland

Clyde 1 & Clyde 2

Clyde 1′s year-on-year was down 7.1 per cent and the figure for its sister station, Clyde 2, down 27.9 per cent.

Global Radio’s London FM stations are all down in listener numbers this quarter but heritage station Capital FM still comes out as the most listened to commercial station.

Nationally, Heart and Capital brands are also down in listeners and share with Capital remaining the bigger network of the two by just 200,000 listeners. The noticeable increases around the country include Heart South West and and Heart Sussex.


LBC 97.3 has gained almost 60,000 listeners year-on-year with a national reach of 1.3m. Bosses are expecting that number to rise once it launched on Digital One next week. LBC News 1152 has seen a drop from 370,000 in Quarter 3 to 236,000 this time round.


Capital is still the only commercial station with over two million listeners.

Capital XTRA

The new Capital XTRA has seen a slight increase since going on Digital One, and now has 854,000 listeners (up from 839,000 last quarter).

Classic FM
Classic FM has seen an increase of over 300,000 listeners though at 5.6m
Ashley Tabor, founder & executive president at Global said: “Global’s strategy of ‘national brands delivered locally’ continues to really deliver. It’s fantastic to have the number 1, 2 and 3 commercial radio brands in Capital, Heart and Classic once again, and to see the Capital network hold the number one spot as the most listened to commercial radio brand in the UK. Capital XTRA’s fantastic opening number is also a testament to our on-going strategy. Capital alone adding 663,000 listeners in a year is a fantastic achievement, and I’d like to congratulate the team at Global for their hard work.”

Richard Park, group executive director and director of broadcasting of Global, said: “Once again we have many reasons to celebrate following a very successful RAJAR. I’m particularly proud to see Classic FM adding 313,000 listeners in the last quarter alone.”

Real Radio & Smooth Radio

In what could be one of the last surveys for Real Radio, every station in the network has recorded a drop in  listeners this quarter. All stations – located in Scotland, Wales, Yorkshire, North East and the North West – are down in weekly reach when comparing RAJAR figures for the last three months. Sister stations Real XS are up though, with Glasgow now on 70,000 listeners and Manchester on 150,000.

Smooth Radio, now networked from Global Radio in London has seen some positive increases, with more listeners in Glasgow and the West Midlands. Smooth Radio North West is on one of its highest ever figures at 900,000. Smooth Radio East Midlands, London and North East lost listeners this quarter. The now closed Smooth 70s went out on a high though, with 804,000 listeners across the UK on DAB before the plug was suddenly pulled in September.

Real and Smooth Radio Ltd, previously run by the Guardian Media Group, is currently being run in hold separate but an announcement on the future of the group and Real Radio brand is expected shortly.

Free Radio

Free Radio Birmingham is down to its lowest ever figure or 13% weekly reach, although remains constant with figures published a year ago. Elsewhere Free Radio Herefordshire & Worcestershire is up 19,000 listeners and Free Radio 80s Shropshire has doubled its audience from 11,000 to 24,000 people.


Yorkshire Coast Radio
Yorkshire Coast Radio achieved its highest audience figures ever. The Scarborough based station now reaches a weekly audience of 50,900 adults and 45% of the area’s population. This is a year-on-year increase of 18%, with 7,800 new listeners turning on in the last 12 months. It can now boast the highest percentage reach of population of all stations in England.

Chris Sigsworth, Managing Director said: “We are over the moon with these latest figures. The team work tirelessly to deliver truly local radio that both informs and entertains the communities in our area. To achieve such a strong following is confirmation that we are connecting with our audience in a way that matters to them.”

William Rogers, Group CEO said: “I’m over the moon that the team at Yorkshire Coast Radio has delivered the highest Reach of any local commercial station in England. A fantastic team effort.”

The Bee

Up 25% in weekly reach since this time last year. The station, which historically stayed around the 20,000 listener mark, now has 51,000 weekly listeners across central and east Lancashire. Stable mate 2BR is also celebrating, now with a 34% weekly reach and 62,000 listeners.

Dee 106.3

Chester’s Dee 106.3 recorded an all-time high – now on 24% weekly reach and 47,000 listeners.

Chief Executive Chris Hurst told RadioToday: “I’m over the moon, it’s a credit to the team that a 10 year old station is attracting its highest audiences ever despite the increase in competitors. We’re proud to provide local programming.”


JACK fm Swindon has recorded a 345% increase in reach year-on-year, making the former Brunel FM station another success story for Celador. The station now has a a 16% weekly reach compared to 3% a year ago.

The JACK format is doing well elsewhere too. A small rise in Oxfordshire this quarter and a big jump from 11% reach to 17% reach year-on-year. It’s the same at JACK South Coast, now on 14% compared with 7% two years ago as The Coast. Jack Bristol posted its highest ever hours and market share too.
