Melbourne radio ratings: 3AW still unmatched, Jase and PJ end on a high

KIIS 101.1 breakfast duo Jase and PJ have delivered an excellent result in their final survey together, with the Australian Radio Network duo climbing +1.8 percentage points in survey three to hit a 7.4% share of listening.

It was the biggest rise of any show on breakfast in Melbourne, but could leave Australian Radio Network (ARN) programmers wondering what might have been, with PJ Harding to depart the show in June and return to her native New Zealand.

The result was one of only a few surprises in Melbourne, with 3AW maintaining the status quo thanks to a 15.6% share overall, despite falling 1.3 percentage points.

Ross and Russell are still almost double the next closest competitors on breakfast too, though fell 1.4 points to reach a 20.1% share.

ABC Melbourne’s Sammy J was the next best on breakfast, with a rise of 0.4 points to hit an 11.1% share. Fourth spot overall – and #1 among FM stations – was shared by Gold’s Christian O’Connell (his eight in a row) and Nova 100’s Chrissie, Sam and Browny – both with an 8% share.

Southern Cross Austereo will be pleased with the performance of Fox FM, with incremental gains of 0.6 points overall and 0.7 points for breakfast show Fifi, Fev and Nick – leaving the show only 0.1 point off a top spot in the slot.

Gold 104.3 continues to deliver excellent overall results as well for ARN, holding second spot with an 11.1% share, with ABC Melbourne in third on 8.8%.
