Nova gets its groove back in latest Brisbane radio survey

Nova 106.9 has reclaimed its lead in the Brisbane market after experiencing a 0.8 point drop in its overall share last survey. The network has returned to the top spot for all people 10+ and the breakfast slot, with an 11.1% and 12% share respectively, according to the latest GfK radio ratings report for 28 February to 3 April and 18 April to 22 May.

Nova’s breakfast line-up of Ash, Kip and Luttsy with Susie O’Neill regained share lost this year, after dropping 0.2 points and 1.6 points in the previous two surveys.

Also in breakfast, ARN’s 4KQ tied with ABC, while overall there was only a point one percentage point difference between second placed 4KQ and third place Triple M. 4KQ had the largest drop for the breakfast slot, down 0.7 points.

Triple M’s performance was steady overall, with the station getting back in the mix after struggling to hit scale the heights it did with former breakfast hosts Lawrence ‘Moonman’ Mooney and Robin Bailey.
