ABC Head of Audio Ben Latimer said:
“ABC listen is a fantastic product and we have been investing heavily in improvements to audience experience over the last 12 months as well as increasing our sport offering. We have just run a dedicated marketing campaign over the Summer reminding audiences that ABC listen is full of incredible live and on demand content, which is accessible anytime, anywhere and always free.
This combined has meant we have seen a phenomenal 11% growth in ABC listen when compared to the same period last Summer.”
