Gerry Ryan, John Clarke (dude, how are you? Long time, no hear. We must do coffee! What do you think of Rafa’s beard?), Ian Dempsey, Tony Fenton, Ray D’Arcy, Mary Wilson, Ana “Yee-Haw” Leddy, Tom Dunne, Ray Foley, Matt Cooper, Ryan Tubridy, the Morning Ireland team, Willie O’Reilly, everyone still working at Newstalk and dozens more of your favourite radio broadcasters, their bosses and their sidekicks will have woken up this morning with The Fear. Except Pat Kenny. He’s still on holidays. And Joe Duffy. He’s on holidays too.

The latest JNLR book is published today. This tome tells you everything you need to know about radio listenership figures in Ireland. It’s like the Leaving Cert results for radio folk every quarter.

It’s the day when you find out the answers to a lot of questions. Whose audience is going up and, more importantly, whose audience is going down? Will all that money which RTE have splashed out on securing the services of G Ryan for the next five years look like an utter waste of licence-payers cash by 5pm? Will Today FM continue to pull ‘em in? Who’ll be the big regional winners? Just how much spin will we be able to handle as the stations desperately try to find something – anything – good in the figures to stick on a press release?

Tune in later today, sports fans, for more mischief making and spin-free updates. Anyone who wishes to make a prediction should use the comment fields below.
