Brisbane radio ratings: Nova’s Kate, Tim and Marty grab highest audience share of any radio show across the country

Brisbane’s Nova 106.9 FM has continued its dominance of the Brisbane market, led by the networked drive team of Kate, Tim and Marty, who saw their audience share climb to 21.7% – the highest share of any radio show show across the country.

Kate, Tim and Marty broke through the 20% barrier

The trio capitalised on the continuing drift of Brisbane listeners away from Hamish and Andy on Southern Cross Austereo’s Hit 105, which lost 2.6 points in the time slot to finish a distant second with a share of 12.5%, down from 14.9% the previous survey.

Nova’s success was replicated in the all-important breakfast slot, with Ash Bradman, Kip Wightman and David Lutteral – Ash, Kip & Luttsy – adding 2 points to grow their share to 14.8%.

97.3 FM’s Bianca, Terry and Bob added 0.6 to finish with a share of 10.6%.

Nova won the overall ratings race with its share up two points to 15.8%. Hit 105 had more bad news with the station dropping from second to third, with its share down 0.5 points to 11%, while Kiis lost just 0.1 points to 11.3% to finish in second place.
