London Rajar – Q2/2017

Over all the years I've been producing this quarterly review I've always been fascinated by the volatile nature of the London market. Sometimes there's a reason why certain stations have done well - as is the case this quarter - yet at other times it's puzzling. This set of results covers the period from 3rd April to 25th June 2017.

Next Radio 2017

Regular readers will know I'm a big fan of Next Radio - which returns to the Royal Institution in London on Monday 18th September.

Most importantly it sees the first set of figures for Virgin Radio, talkRADIO, talkSPORT 2, Mellow Magic and Magic Chilled since they launched. In London they are currently towards the bottom end of the ranking but these are early days and I think it would be unwise to read anything more into them at this stage. It's been a very strong quarter for LBC with its highest-ever Reach ... Read more
