London Rajar – Q3/2016

It’s Rajar time once again. This quarter covers the period from 27th June – 26th September.

LBC’s strong performance last time was thought to be because of the lead-up to the EU Referendum as well as the London Mayoral election, and as they have dropped back again this time this would seem to be the case. The station has maintained its domination of the late-night and overnight hours and has the highest share of London’s commercial stations.

Most other London stations are also down, in terms of Reach, on the last quarter with the exception of Absolute and Magic. Capital, Kiss, Smooth and Radio X are also down year on year.

As usual I shall let the charts do the talking!
