Radio Network Number One Nationwide in Talk, Music And Sport

Radio Network Number One Nationwide in Talk, Music And Sport

Chief Executive of the Radio Network (TRN), Jane Hastings, says the latest TNS New Zealand Commercial Survey 1/2013 results released today show TRN has strengthened across key target audiences.

“The TRN team have done an outstanding job and this is just the beginning. We are number one nationwide in talk, music and sport* and we dominate the household shopper audience. We’ve certainly started to hit the goals we are targeting including seeing growth in the highly competitive 18-44 audience^^^.

“The rebirth of Radio Hauraki has revitalised the audience and although it is early days the feedback from listeners tells us we are back in business.

“Outside of providing stimulating entertainment options for listeners, we are in the business of delivering the most relevant audiences for our advertisers and this latest result has shown increases in the key demographics our advertisers need to access.”

- ZM is a close second behind TRN’s Newstalk ZB at 12.9*, but actually takes the number one spot in total listeners^, giving TRN the two most listened-to radio stations in the capital.*
- The Mike Hosking Breakfast on Newstalk ZB is the number one breakfast show in Wellington, with ZM’s Morning Crew number two in breakfast ++
- ZM remains a clear number one in the 18-34#, 25-44## and 25-54### demographics. The ZM Morning Crew continues to dominate breakfast music radio in Wellington. ++
An impressive result for Classic Hits increases its climb to 8.6 share* retaining its number four spot in the market with big increases in the number of listeners 25-44^^ and 25-54^^^ demographics
Classic Hits Breakfast hosts Dave and Camille up again to 7.3 share, beating their best result ever.

General Manager of TRN Wellington Rhys Nimmo says his team are celebrating the outstanding result.

“We’re number one in news, music and sport*. With ZB and Sport combined we hold 17.3* per cent share of listening compared to the combined audience of our nearest competitors, so it’s fair to say we completely dominate Wellington in talk radio.

“ZM has had another outstanding result for the key markets of 18-34# and 25-54### age groups with the highest share of listenership, giving our advertisers a significant opportunity when targeting these important sectors.

“Classic Hits has twice the overall audience* of its direct competitor More FM and has almost three times the audience of More FM in the Drive Show+++ hosted by Jason Gunn and Dave Fitzgerald. Again we offer a strong combination for our advertisers particularly those targeting household shoppers. Given the recent changes to Hauraki’s line up the increase in listeners in the 25-44^^ age group is outstanding, particularly given this early stage.”
