For the breakfast timeslot, Nova’s Ash, Kip and Lutsy with Susie O’Neil stayed at the same percentage as the previous survey, at 13.1%, which was an increase of 1.8 points from Survey 5. 4KQ’s Laurel, Gary & Mark also stayed the same, at 12%, which was also an increase of 0.9 points from Survey 5 as well.

Nine’s 4BC’s Breakfast with Neil Breen, which switched frequencies from 1116 to 882, had one of the larger increases for this survey, with a 1.2 point increase to 9.3%. It was also the largest change in the breakfast timeslot.

While Southern Cross Austereo’s Triple M’s Marto and Margaux went up 0.8 points to 10.3, after its two percentage points from 9.9% to 7.9% from the last survey.  The show lost Nick Cody to FoxFM earlier this year, although initially, that did not appear to affect ratings.

97.3FM’s Will & Woody experienced the greatest change in an increase of 2.2 points, to 10.5%, which was also second for the drive timeslot.
