Nova 100, Gold 104.3, Fox FM, smooth 95.3 and Nova96.9 all have over a million listeners with KIIS 1065, smooth 91.5 and KIIS101.1 all in the 900 thousand range.
While Kyle & Jackie O still lead breakfast overall, Chrissy Sam & Browny are closing the gap ever so slightly, followed by Fitzy & Wippa in front of Ross & John who leapfrogged Christian O’Connell.
The survey was held from Sunday February 9th until Saturday April 4th so the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic is difficult to pinpoint. Some talk stations like 2GB and 3AW picked up audience overall, but so did Nova 100, and triple j in Melbourne, and smooth 95.3 in Sydney.
9 of the top ten stations are music orientated stations, while only four talk/news stations (3AW, 2GB, ABC Syd, ABC Melb) make it into the top 20.
