GfK NZ Commercial Radio Ratings - S3 2019

Commercial Radio reaches over 77% of all New Zealanders - Total NZ - Survey 3 2019

The Third Radio Survey release for 2019 shows the continued strength of commercial radio as a regular part of 3.3 million New Zealanders everyday lives.

The latest results see the return to more traditional listening patterns after the increase in news and talk station listening earlier this year following the Christchurch Mosque Attacks.

RBA CEO Jana Rangooni points out “As well as being loved for music and entertainment radio continues to be a trusted source of news, information and commentary in times of significant news events. We see this with major events of national interest and more frequently with localised issues like this week’s flooding in the Coromandel.”
