It’s interesting to note how yesterday’s JNLR figures impact on some individual shows as opposed to the station’s market share and reach.

Going up:

Ray D’Arcy (Today FM) – up 4,000 listeners

Tom Dunne (Today FM) – up 3,000 listeners

Going down:

Gerry Ryan (2FM) – a whopping 15,000 listeners turned off during the period under review, joining the 51,000 listeners who abandoned Radio Gerry in 2005

Ian Dempsey (Today FM) – down 3,000 listeners

Pat Kenny (RTE Radio One) – down 8,000 listeners

Ryan Tubridy (RTE Radio One) – down 15,000 listeners

Morning Ireland (RTE Radio One) – down 18,000 listeners

The Last Word (Today FM) – down 5,000 listeners

Drivetime (RTE Radio One) – down 9,000 listeners

My favourite quote from the round of spin which always goes hand in hand with a new JNLR book? The reaction of RTE radio’s big cheese Anna Leddy:

“I am looking forward to the August book which will give us a fuller picture of the impact of schedule changes on both RTÉ Radio 1 and RTÉ 2FM.”

She won’t be the only one. Hi John.
