Adelaide radio ratings: Hit 107 jumps after breakfast show axing announcement

Hit 107 saw Adelaide’s biggest jump in the fifth radio survey for 2018 with the station grabbing 9.0% of the audience, up from 8.3 in the previous period.

The jump was driven by an 0.8 point increase for the Amos, Cat and Angus breakfast show which was axed last week due to “changing audience demographics”. The trio are due to finish in September.
