Duncan Campbell, national content director for ARN told Mumbrella: “ARN was recently referred to as the quiet achiever. We have a methodical approach. What we do is based on a sound strategy and Adelaide and Brisbane is our highlights. Brisbane has returned to number one. And to be number one in Adelaide and Brisbane in breakfast shows the hard work everyone is putting in is paying off.”

Nova however is delivering strong numbers in drive with Meshel Tim and Marty leading the market on 15.6 percent.

At breakfast, ABC612’s Spencer Howson maintains the lead despite a drop from 15.8 percent to 14.8 percent.

Southern Cross Austereo’s B105 – part of the Today Network – dropped from 11 percent to 9.8 percent, while 4MMM  lifted from 8.6 percent to 9.7 percent in the overall Monday to Sunday share.
