Commenting today, Head of 2fm, Dan Healy said: “This JNLR is hugely significant for 2fm – not only does it signal a turn in fortunes for the station but to have grown so strongly in this book suggests that 2fm and Today fm have been neck-in-neck in the last three months. All day programming has performed well, Ryan Tubridy continues to be the main audience driver for the station. We have big gains across weekends with Saturday’s being particularly strong."
