We've got 10 thousand more people listening to us every single day compared to this time last year!

iRadio has seen a jump in all metrics in the latest JNLR listenership figures.

We have 186 thousand adults listening to us every single say, while 358 thousand tune in every week.

iRadio’s drive time show ‘Dave & Fionnuala’ saw a big increase in listenership, jumping 7,000 listeners to 82,000.

Bauer Media Audio Ireland, which is made up of iRadio, Today FM, Newstalk, 98FM, Spin1038, Spin South West and Cork's Red FM, has recorded a record weekly audience of 2.18 million listeners, with daily listenership standing at 1.42 million.

iRadio CEO & Content Director Mark Cunning is thrilled with today's results:

"This is massive for iRadio, we're up in all metrics in both year on year and book on book.

We've seen huge growth among our daytime shows: Sharron's seen 6,000 new listeners join her mid-morning slot across the last twelve months; iRadio's evening talk show, The Hub with Louise Clarke has added 4,000 new listeners over the last twelve months; and Dave and Fionnuala now have 82,000 listeners every single day, that's 7,000 more than this time last year." 

Commenting on the results, Bauer Media Audio Ireland CEO Chris Doyle said:

“This is a brilliant set of results for Bauer, our teams work so hard to deliver world-class content and it is great to see their efforts being recognised and appreciated by audiences.

With nearly one million listeners a week to Today FM and Newstalk achieving all-time highs, we are very proud of these accomplishments along with significant performances from our other brands, including Red FM, iRadio, 98FM and SPIN, all contributing to superb results."
