Nine’s talk radio stations recorded their best ever result in the 3 survey, with 1.92 million listeners tuning in weekly on 2GB, 3AW, 4BC and 6PR, up 10% from one year to the next.

The results are led by Sydney’s 2GB and Melbourne’s 3AW, cementing their position as the most listened to radio stations in Australia’s two largest cities.

In the 25-54 age group, Nine’s radio stations increased their audience by 8%.

Greg Byrnes, Nine Radio’s Chief Content Officer, said: “After our best start to the year, we have attracted even more listeners during this survey period. The year-over-year result is impressive given that 2GB is up over 21%, 4BC up 15% and 3AW up almost 10%. In Sydney, Ben Fordham and Ray Hadley are well above last year. While in Melbourne, Ross and Russ and Neil Mitchell managed to contain the massive number of people logging on each morning. We are committed to providing the best live, local news and opinion in the country and thank our listeners for their loyalty.
