Commercial Radio Australia Chief Executive Officer Joan Warner said the first survey in Canberra from GfK is the beginning of a new industry partnership with international research company GfK and sees Canberra surveyed three times throughout 2014, rather than twice: 

“The industry and listeners are all keen to see today’s results with changes to presenters and a new audience measurement provider.  This will be the first of three surveys and listeners will no doubt sample the various on air teams and settle into a listening pattern.  2014 promises to be an exciting year in radio, Australian audiences are passionate about their radio and we look forward to a successful year.”
