Mix 106.3 has continued its dominance over the Canberra airwaves, with more Canberrans tuning into their breakfast, morning, afternoon and drive shows than any other station.

In GFK’s third survey of 2019, Mix 106.3 topped the charts with 17.1 per cent of the local audience, followed by sister station Hit 104.7 (15.4 per cent). Triple J with 12.7 per cent of listeners has usurped ABC Canberra (11.5 per cent) from its usual third spot on the ratings.

ABC Classic (7.6 per cent), Radio National (6.6 per cent), 2CA (6.5 per cent), 2CC (5.5 per cent) and ABC News (4.5 per cent) all followed.

Kristen and Nige’s breakfast show has maintained its hold on morning listeners, with 17.3 per cent of the audience tuning into their show, followed by ABC Canberra’s Dan Bourchier (15.2 per cent), Hit 104.7 (at 14.6 per cent, down 2.4 percentage points on the last survey) and Triple J’s Ben and Liam (14 per cent, up 2.7 per cent).

Canberra FM Radio general manager Craig Wagstaff said he could not be prouder of the team’s success.

“A legendary effort with Mix 106.3’s Kristen and Nige, number one for the third consecutive survey, a feat made even more extraordinary as it is the show’s first year,” Mr Wagstaff said.

“We are again thrilled and humbled to be number one and number two. These results have continued our strong performance across 2019 and are driven by our passionate, diverse and collaborative team, community support and that of our business partners.”

Weekend radio listeners continue to tune into Mix 106.3 (16.1 per cent, up 1.7 per cent), Hit 104.7 (13.7 per cent, a drop of 3.3 per cent) and ABC Canberra (11.6 per cent, up 1.4 per cent).

2CC saw a big spike in listeners to its Ray Hadley morning show, now up to 9 per cent of local listeners thanks to a 3.9 per cent increase, while Triple J’s weekday drive slot (4:00 pm-7:00 pm) also enjoyed a surge of listeners, now up to 16.5 per cent with a jump of 3.8 per cent.

2CA and 2CC general manager of Michael Jones said the strong results reflect the strength of radio in Canberra.

“Canberra is tuned in to the radio and these results for 2CA and 2CC confirm that they love what they’re hearing,” Mr Jones said. “The strong results for 2CC reflect the strength of the world class radio that 2CC delivers to Canberrans with Australia’s top rating talk presenters.

“The recent addition of Alan Jones to the Breakfast timeslot is already starting to deliver ratings.”

Can’t stand Kristen, but love Nige. Her deep and low manly voice does my head in.

Cause we've all switched over from 2CC cause we don't want to listen to Alan Jones.

Allan Chisholm Allan Chisholm 8:42 pm 03 Oct 19

Yep that happened to me as well. I stopped listening to 106.3 when Kirsten started. They blocked me I made a request to bring back the previous host. I said in one day Kirsten has stopped me listening to the show after more than 2 decades. They don't like criticism at all.

Radio National or Classic FM, Auntie serves up quality, local ABC has always been a bit mumsy.

Heather Anderson Heather Anderson 7:20 pm 03 Oct 19

I switched to 2CA years ago from 106.3 & couldn’t be happier

John Hynes John Hynes 5:56 pm 03 Oct 19

Radio National is a pleasant surprise

Michael Doherty Michael Doherty 5:49 pm 03 Oct 19

Only listen to 2CA. It plays the music from my era.

Haggis Harry Haggis Harry 5:45 pm 03 Oct 19

Any station other then 1053 is a sin.

Scatty Anthony Scatty Anthony 4:43 pm 03 Oct 19

Never heard of them, don't listen and won't listen while DAB and internet Radio are available, I'll listen to a real radio station from anywhere in the world....
