SCA chief content officer, Dave Cameron, said: “Carrie & Tommy have increased their national metro audience by 125,000 to 1,697,000 as they continue to be Australia’s most adventurous and fun national drive show having recently taken 30 listeners to London on the trip of a lifetime.

“All these results show how well our brands are resonating with local audiences.”

Commercial radio stations in Adelaide reported a 6.8% year-on-year increase in ad revenue to $5.829 million, according to a report by Commercial Radio Australia.

The survey ran from 17 April to 25 June, partially overlapping with the previous survey period.
