Tom McGuire, Head of Radio 1 says: "I'm delighted that the top 15 programmes in the country come out of RTÉ radio 1. Marian Finucane continues to be the country's top presenter, more than a quarter of a million listeners tune into weekend sport on Radio 1 and Drivetime with Mary Wilson continues to lead the way home. After one of the most changeable years in Irish broadcasting - more people are listening longer to RTÉ Radio 1 and we appreciate that loyalty."
Commenting today, Head of 2fm, Dan Healy said: This JNLR is too soon to see any changes in the 2fm schedule however, we have seen progress in the Dublin market compared to this time last year which is a significant goal for the radio station which is now bigger than 98FM. (Primetime Market Share).
On its 15th Anniversary, RTÉ lyric fm increases station reach by 1 point year on year. Said Aodan Ó Dubhghaill, Head of RTÉ lyric fm: "Lyric continues to consolidate its position and remains steady as she goes. Favourite broadcasters like Marty Whelan, George Hamilton and Trish Taylor have all seen gains. Today is Lyric's birthday and after 15 years on air we keep providing a unique listening platform for our loyal and cherished listeners."
