Did you know there are now 252 phones for every 100 people in the United Arab Emirates?[1]

On a global scale the region is home to some of the highest levels of smartphone penetration in the world[2] (74%), considerably higher than the likes of countries such as the USA and Canada and almost 10% higher than in the UK. Perhaps you might find this surprising?

Before making the move to Dubai I’d have thought the same – my image of Dubai was one of a sandy concrete metropolis that was more famous for having the tallest, biggest and best buildings in the world than being known for its pioneering campaigns.

Yet on moving to the region, it’s clear to me that both the brands and media here are out to inspire.

But while undoubtedly there’s still work to be done, the UAE, and indeed the Middle East has a real hunger to lead the way. Just like its savvy smartphone population which has been quick to embrace advances in technology, there is a strong ambition from brands and media to push the boundaries on tried and tested traditional content, and become pioneers in an altogether different capacity.

There is a sense of urgency to catch up. Media and brands alike want to be famous in their own way. Innovation, which has indeed become the watchword of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed’s vision for 2015 has filtered down; there is a hunger to be trailblazing in terms of creating new and exciting campaigns to engage new and core audiences.

And what’s not to get excited about? With the World Expo 2020 win under its belt, the Smart Cities initiative and news that Dubai is now the busiest airport in the world in terms of passenger numbers, the region is in a strong position.

So where are the opportunities? Well, for one, harnessing the power of mobile represents a huge opportunity for brands to communicate to core and new audiences – whether that’s internal or external. The hugely successful #MyDubai initiative, which continues to create a virtual autobiography of Dubai – is underpinned by mobile – inviting people to upload their pictures and videos to social media.

What’s more, news that the Burj Khalifa has been voted in the top three destinations in the world for selfies again shows the power of mobile as a means to help profile a destination.  And excitingly, indeed even the New Year’s Eve fireworks 2014 saw a first for the region – the event itself was streamed live to tablet and laptop devices so an online mobile audience could view the spectacular display.

So what’s next? With the pathway firmly being set for a year of innovation, what’s clear is that brands will continue to push the boundaries in terms of delivering bolder campaigns in order to create new ways to interact with audiences. This positivity is setting a precedence that’s infectious. In the race to be providing the most creative driven content, maybe soon the world will look towards the Middle East for inspiration.

This article has been contributed by Cheryl King, General Manager of markettiers4dc MENA (@cherylking45).

Cheryl’s UK experience includes delivering a number of live streaming events for brands directly to social media channels via mobile devices (including working on Britain’ first ever exclusive Facebook concert with Eliza Doolittle for Carphone Warehouse). Upon moving to Dubai, Cheryl believes the huge proliferation of smartphones and growth in social media is providing a key opportunity for brands to harness its potential.

It’s celebrations all round for YouTube as it turns ten years old this Saturday.


YouTube is currently the world’s most popular video sharing website and is accessed by over 1 billion users each month, with 100 hours of content being uploaded every minute.

The site has come a long way since it was founded by three former PayPal employees Chad Hurley, Steve Chen and Jawed Karim in a makeshift office in a garage. After getting off to a bit of shaky start, YouTube was acquired by Google in 2006 which contributed to the site’s rapid growth. Though the exact figures are not made public, a report by Jefferies & Co has suggested that Youtube is now worth up to $40 billion.



• The average length of the most viewed YouTube videos is 31-120 seconds
• The best days to post YouTube videos are Thursday and Friday
• 40% of YouTube content is viewed via a mobile device
• The most popular user is PewDiePie who has 33+ million subscribers to his channel
• The most popular video is Gangnam Style by Psy which received over 2.2. billion views
• Rebecca Black’s ‘Friday’ music video was removed after receiving 3.1 million dislikes
• The first video to be uploaded was ‘Me at the zoo’ which can still be viewed on the site today.


As well as being a platform for traditional media owners to host content from their shows, from a brand perspective YouTube has provided one of the biggest opportunities for creativity and engagement. Many organisations have enjoyed ‘going viral’ over the years with clever videos; Old Spice, Air New Zealand and Evian to name a few. See below for some of our favourites…

Top RAJAR stories

  • BBC Radio 6 Music has become the first digital-only station to achieve 2 million weekly listeners
  • Chris Evans continues to win the battle of breakfast with 9.6 million listeners, adding over 300,000 since Q3

The detail:

BBC National


BBC Radio 1

The breakfast show has been a focus of attention since Grimshaw took over from Chris Moyles in 2012 – the slot was up 1.4% on Q3, although, over the last year, has witnessed a -6.2% decline. The listenership for the station stood at 10.43m, down 4.9% year-on-year as well as shrinking 1.1% on last quarter. Its share was 6.6%, down from 6.9% (in both Q3 14 and Q4 13).


BBC Radio 1Xtra

1Xtra’s reach was up, growing 1.5% YoY and 5% over the previous quarter to 1.11m.


BBC Radio 2

Chris Evans’ breakfast slot continued to dominate, upping its weekly reach from the Q3 by 3.2% over the period – an increase of 297,000 listeners. Year on year, the picture is slightly different, down -2.2%, still at 9.6 million listeners each week, Chris is still the man to beat. As a station, Radio 2’s reach was up 1.8% compared to Q3, but its figure of 15.28m represented a year-on-year drop of 1.5%.
BBC Radio 3
Radio 3 edged its audience over the two million mark but is still pulling in fewer listeners than the digital-only service 6 Music. The classical music station has 2.03 million listeners in the last three months of last year, up from 1.91 million the quarter before.

BBC Radio 4
The Today Programme was up slightly, at 1.1% this quarter, whilst recording a -5.2% decline over the last year. Maintaining its second place ranking behind Chris Evans, the station draws in almost 6.8 million listeners each week.

BBC Radio 5Live (and Sports Extra)
With less sport to cover over the last few months, 5 Live (including sports extra) was down -6.9% quarter on quarter and -12.6% year on year, most of this decline as a result of 5Live sports extra on its own, which was down a huge -46% quarter on quarter and -26.1% year on year.
BBC Asian Network
BBC Asian Network remained the biggest Asian radio station in the UK. Posting 619,000 listeners for the quarter. It was down by 10,000 listeners which may be a result of some amendments to its programming. Its listening hours remained at 6.6.


BBC 6 Music
6 Music edged over its goal of two million weekly listeners in the fourth quarter of 2014. The radio station’s reach hit 2.08 million, up 4.5% from Q3 – a 6.2% increase year-on-year. However, 6 Music’s share dipped from 1.7% to 1.6% year-on-year.


BBC Regional

Most BBC local radio stations have taken a mild drop in overall reach reflecting the rise of integrated news offerings from regional media outlets and subsequently the changes in media consumption seen this year. However, a number of stations such as BBC Coventry and Warwickshire, BBC Suffolk and BBC Gloucestershire have all seen increases in listeners since Q3.



The number of weekly listeners to BBC Radio Wales and BBC Radio Cymru rose in the last three months of 2014. Figures for October to December last year show BBC Radio Wales had a weekly audience of 427,000. That is a rise of 29,000 compared to the number who listened between July and September 2014. Cymru’s weekly listeners increased slightly to 106,000, a rise of 1,000 on the record low audience figures in the previous three months.



BBC Radio Scotland is on an upward trend with 888,000 reach and continues to be the biggest radio station in the country.






Signal 107

Signal 107 has increased listeners by 68% year on year and 46% quarter on quarter, and growing average hours by 56% since this time in the previous year.


Juice FM

Juice FM in Liverpool has posted double digit increases across the board. Listening hours have increased by 56% year on year and 33% quarter on quarter.


Pulse 1&2

Pulse 1 & 2 have seen growth on all fronts, with average hours up 55% year on year and 41% since Q3, and listener reach increased by 21% year on year and 7% quarter on quarter.


Wire FM

Wire FM has almost doubled its average hours with a 93% increase year on year.


Other UTV

Swansea Sound in South Wales has more people tuning in with their reach growing 21% year on year. There are increases at Tower FM, Signal 1 and Radio Wave too. Peak 107 continues to lose listeners though, down from 98,000 listeners to 87,000 quarter on quarter.


Bauer Radio

Bauer Radio (including Orion) maintained the second spot with a weekly reach of almost 17 million, while Bauer Radio’s total portfolio, in third place, secured a little over 16 million following an 11.3% year on year boost.


Heat Radio
Heat saw its reach up 31.8% YoY to 941,000 compared to 714,000 in Q4 2013, although the station was down 2.5% compared to 965,000 in Q3 2014.

Absolute Radio

The main Absolute Radio service drops from 1.872 million to 1.708. At breakfast, the Absolute Radio Network stood at 1,616,000 in Q4 2014, which was up compared to 1,436,000 in Q3 13 but down from 1,758,000 in Q3 2014. In London, Absolute claimed a reach of 694,000 in the fourth quarter of 2014, down 14.2% year-on-year and down 13.1% quarter-on-quarter. Its London share stood at 1.9% compared to 2.3% over the same period in 2013.

Magic showed a quarterly dip, losing 10% of its audience between Q3 and Q4 as figures fell to 1.76 million from 1.96 million. However, year on year, the station remained stable, adding 0.4 per cent to its reach. The loss of the breakfast DJ Neil Fox hasn’t affected the station’s morning audience, as it grew 13 per cent period on period to 884,000 in the final quarter of 2014.



Bauer’s Kiss Network is a new combined entry for Rajar, replacing the Kiss UK brand adding Kerrang! and Heat to its weekly reach figures.  The combination sees the network kick off with a reach of more than 6.1 million weekly listeners – 1.3 million more than the previous incarnation Kiss UK

Kiss Fresh claimed a reach of 457,000 , which was up 18.1% year-on-year but down 19.1% quarter-on-quarter. Kisstory was up 13.4% YoY to 1,051,000.


Other Bauer
In Northern Ireland, Downtown Radio is up on reach to 21% and has posted its highest hours in recent years. Sister station Cool FM is down quarter on quarter and year on year but remains the biggest commercial station in the area with 361,000 listeners.

Global Radio

Total Global Radio (UK) maintained its dominance over the national and networks with 21.2 million listeners on average. Although the network saw very little change over the quarter (-0.2%), it was up a healthy 6.2% year on year.


Global Heart Network recorded a 0.4% quarterly decline but increased its weekly reach by almost a quarter at 23.8% compared with Q4 2013, with its weekly reaching 9.4 million, a result of the Real Radio stations rebranding to Heart.  In London the station has its biggest hours in recent times after recovering from a major drop last quarter but goes to 5th place in terms of reach. In the regions, seven stations went down, two stayed the same and nine increased listeners, including Scotland, North East, North West, Yorkshire and West Midlands. The station’s breakfast show with Jamie Theakston and Emma Bunton made up some of the ground it lost in the previous quarter by winning an additional 160,000 listeners, taking their audience to 681,000.


LBC Network saw a steady increase over the quarter, up 3.4%, with 1.3m reach nationwide, back up over a million in London. In contrast, LBC News 1152 dropped 80,000 listeners to 254,000 in the last three months.



The XFM Network is down this quarter from 988,000 to 941,000 weekly reach but is up year-on-year. London had a small increase but Manchester went from 298,000 listeners to 222,000 in the last three months.



The Capital Network lost reach quarter-on-quarter, and goes behind KISS in London, but keeps the number 1 breakfast show on commercial radio in London with Dave and Lisa. At the stations, five Capitals lost listeners (London, NE, North West & Wales, Scotland, South Coast), one stayed the same (South Wales) and four (EM, Birmingham, Manchester, Yorkshire) went up.

Capital XTRA has achieved an increase in London, now with 411,000 listeners compared with 323,000 last quarter. The national audience stays the same at 809,000 weekly reach.

Classic FM

Good performance from Classic with a 7.1% quarter on quarter increase resulting in (just under) 5.6 million weekly listeners, which is an addition of 370,000 listeners in the last three months of 2014, fairly steady year-on-year. There have also been significant audience increases for Classic FM’s weekday programming.  Since taking on the station’s afternoon show in September, Anne-Marie Minhall is now listened to by 2.6 million people and increase of 229,000.


Smooth Radio

Good performance at Smooth as the London station is up on all measures and now has 760,000 listeners, from 742,000 in the last quarter. This time last year it had 441,000 listeners in London. Nationally, Smooth has 4.8m listeners with 2m of those on digital.

Orion Media
Free Radio

Free Radio Birmingham and Black Country has recorded its worst ever reach, down to 314k from 380k last quarter. Hours has also dropped 27% quarter on quarter. Free Radio Coventry is stable year on year for reach but hours are down dramatically quarterly and yearly. Free Radio Herefordshire and Worcestershire is down 25% in hours year on year whilst Shropshire is down 22%.




Jack FM

UKRD Overview

Pirate is down a little in reach, Eagle Radio is up a little, The Bee takes a dip from 55,000 listeners to 44,000 this quarter, and Wessex FM is on a growing trend with an impressive 43% reach.



Lincs FM continues to bring in a large audience, with 322,000 weekly listeners, up year on year and quarter on quarter. Dearne FM however has been losing listeners after a spike 18 months ago. The station now has 43,000 listeners compared with 60,000 a year ago.



Anglian Radio Overview

The latest numbers show a weekly reach to the Anglian stations of 235,000 (23%) listeners. That number rises to 358,000 a month, and 452,000 a quarter. Total listening hours also broke through the two million mark.

Celebrations too in Norwich, where Radio Norwich 99.9 grew its audience, hours & market share.

The broadcast landscape is undergoing its greatest significant change in 25 years, creating new opportunities for PRs to drive coverage for brands. This is the result of a number of factors, including the rise in consumption of digital media, audience shifts to mobile and post-recession mergers and acquisitions. Here are some recent changes and upcoming news to look out for in 2015.


There have been a number of developments across the BBC and commercial broadcast networks that will impact on audiences in 2015. New channels continue to be launched, alongside changes to programming on a national and regional level.

Overhaul of ITV Daytime

ITV’s flagship daytime programmes have all seen changes to attract a young female audience. Daybreak was replaced with the more news-focussed Good Morning Britain; Loose Women enlisted younger presenters and This Morning was overhauled to be more topical and less sensational. A new chat show with Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins is launching this January which will feature celebrity guests, experts and people in the news.

National BBC Radio

Radio 4 is building its younger listenership. Producers are on the hunt for lighter news items, stories about entertainment and technology for example.

Radio 5 live is in the process of a programme revamp. There have already been content and presenter changes on Drive with many more to come in 2015.

Community Radio

The growth in community stations is set to continue in 2015. As the once independent commercial stations are eaten up by large radio groups such as Global’s Capital and Heart, community stations are now the most relevant source of truly ‘local’ programming.

Sky News iPad app

The new app offers exclusive content not available on TV, as a result of more people now viewing breaking stories via App rather than on TV.

Forces TV (run by BFBS)

BFBS has launched a 24 hour rolling news TV channel which is available on Sky, Virgin Media and Freesat, Forces TV features news and features about life in the armed forces.

BBC News £20m cuts

BBC News is undergoing many developments which will provide increasing opportunities for PRs of which to take advantage. The department is making £20m cuts which will mean producers will be more reliant on organisations supplying their own content.

General Election

The general election will undoubtedly be a great coverage opportunity for organisations which have relevant discussion points. Equally broadcasters will also have a need for lighter stories for editorial balance.


Traditional broadcasters are adapting to consumers’ changing media habits. With mobile media breaking the news, stations are now offering integrated programming across traditional and digital channels.


Serial podcast: 5 million downloads per episode

Topping download charts, podcasts are now attracting audiences in their thousands and millions. Often overlooked by PRs, many podcasts have audiences on a par with highly read blogs. One extremely popular podcast from the creators of This American Life is Serial. Serial delves under the skin of a real-life conviction of an American teenager week by week. Each aspect of the trial is analysed by host, Sarah Koening.


YouTube content continues to rise in popularity, particularly amongst the younger generations.

Vice News Channel:

1,068,341 viewers

Vice Media launched Vice News which broadcasts daily news updates, trailers and documentaries via their YouTube channel. Targeting a younger demographic, the channel highlights ‘News Beyond the Headlines’.


AJ+: Broadcast channel for ‘tech natives’

Another media brand looking to engage the millennial generation is AJ+, a global platform from Al Jazeera media network available on YouTube, mobile app and social media. News stories are presented in ‘stacks’ of rich media cards which prioritise interactive content over text.

BBC Radio 5 live ‘In Short

Last year BBC 5 live launched ‘In Short’ which features bite sized clips of the most popular interviews, news and sport each week.


BBC+1: launching 2015

With BBC+1 launching this coming year, the main public service broadcasters (BBC, ITV, Channel 4 and Channel 5) will have a 58.7% share of TV viewing when the new breed of “timeshifted” channels is included – this will create more OTS for PR driven TV coverage.

This blog has been contributed by Account Manager Lucy Davies, @lucypdavies.

On Tuesday 11th November a merry band of markettiers duly donned our glad rags to join our PR-ing peers at the annual PRCA Awards.  Nominated in the Healthcare campaign category for Bayer’s SlimeWatch campaign, alongside our print counterparts Pegasus, and against ourselves in the Broadcast award, for Bayer’s Hound Waves and our work for law firm Slater and Gordon, we joined our clients in excited anticipation at London’s Hilton Park Lane for the event.

Our compere for the evening was Heart London’s breakfast presenter Jamie Theakston.  Jovial, amusing and surprisingly tall, Jamie was a fitting presenter for the event, knowing only too well the benefits of a good PR team…

One of the first Awards on the agenda was for Best Healthcare Campaign, for which we were shortlisted in the agency category.  First to be announced was the winner in the in-house category – RNIB’s I Am There campaign, which we also had the pleasure to work with the charity on.  And a triumph in the agency category took the total Awards haul for SlimeWatch to a fantastic six across a range of industry awards including the CIPR Excellence Awards, In2 SABREs and PRWeek Awards.

Next up, markettiers4dc Managing Director Helen Moore took to the stage to present the Best Media Relations Award – to Brands2Life and The British Heart Foundation for agency and in-house respectively.

And the last of our excitement for the evening came with the announcement of the shortlist for the Best Broadcast Award – with the Bayer, Slater and Gordon and markettiers4dc teams waiting with baited breath.  The winner was announced as Slater and Gordon with markettiers4dc for a sustained media relations campaign that has seen brand recognition for the Australian law firm rise from 2% to 37% in a 12-month period.

A fantastic result all round, congratulations to all the team members who worked on the winning campaigns, BRING ON THE CORPCOMMS AWARDS…

Gavin Oldham, Managing Director of Share Radio said:

“Our aim is to create a varied and engaging media channel that helps people feel better informed and better able to make financial decisions, no matter what their starting point. At a time when people need and want to manage their money and investment matters for themselves, we want to help make decisions easier and more rewarding.

“For listeners from all walks of life, Share Radio will provide a way to connect to experts, to peers and to industry decision makers. We’ll provide hard hitting news and views as well as entertainment and inspiration. We’re looking forward to sharing ideas about money to foster greater confidence in financial matters.”

Today sees further evidence suggesting that London is the broadcast capital of the world, as RT – formerly Russia Today – launches its dedicated UK channel in the capital.

The Kremlin-backed station, which already airs its international programming on UK freeview and satellite, will now provide five hours of bespoke programming relevant to UK audiences each day, with a promise to “dissect the implications of major international developments for UK audiences”.

Over the last few years, there has been a steady increase of international broadcasters, such as Al Jazeera, targeting UK audiences via their own channels. Consequently, this is creating more opportunities for PRs to drive international coverage on behalf of brands.

RT editor-in-chief Margarita Simonyan said: “It has always been RT’s goal to bring new perspectives to our viewers – to show them the side of the story they won’t see on the mainstream channels.”

The new UK RT will be presented by British news anchor Bill Dod, US financial commentator Max Keiser, and journalist and talkshow host Afshin Rattansi – to name a few.

RT international spans three news channels in English, Spanish and Arabic, including Washington-based RT America. It claims to be available to more than 700 million viewers in more than 100 countries.

The latest RAJAR results have been released revealing a number of significant developments for UK stations.

The radio marketplace

  • 9 out of 10 UK adults, or 46.7 million, tune in to radio each week
  • 51% of listeners use a digital device to listen to radio at least once a week, whilst 37.8% of all radio listening is via digital platforms
  • 21% of adults listen to the radio via a mobile phone or tablet at least once per month, up 45% YOY
  • 20% of the adult population currently receive updates about their favourite radio station/presenter via social media, with the figure rising to 37% of 15-24s

Top RAJAR stories

  • BBC Radio 4 has increased its reach to overtake BBC Radio 1 with just under 11 million listeners, suggesting a growing appetite for speech-based news and culture stories over pop music. The Editor of the Today Programme has recently commented that the station is now trying to attract a younger demographic
  • BBC 6 Music is up 5.4%, QOQ, to over 1.9 million listeners and, over the year, the station has seen a 15.2% increase. Lauren Laverne has helped take BBC Radio 6 Music to its biggest-ever audience, overtaking BBC Radio 3 in the process
  • Capital Breakfast with Dave Berry and Lisa Snowdon remains top of the London breakfast rankings, with 1 million listeners; Magic is up to second with 781,000, whilst Kiss is up to 3rd on 689,000
  • Bauer’s network of stations including Magic, Kiss and HeatRadio is still out-performing BBC Radio 2 for a third consecutive quarter after the acquisition of national player, Absolute Radio last year. Over the last 12 months the network has seen a 13.3% growth rate

The detail:

BBC National

BBC Radio 1 (& 1Xtra)

Nick Grimshaws Breakfast Show on Radio 1 secured 5.82 million weekly listeners, placing his show 3rd nationally. Grimshaw’s breakfast show has faced turbulent times since he took over from Chris Moyles in 2012, and while the third quarter saw average weekly listeners drop by -2.5%, the show was up 4.3% compared with this time last year to shine a glimmer of hope for the station.

Ben Cooper, who also oversees digital sibling station 1Xtra, said Radio 1 was “leading the industry in becoming a multiplatform youth brand”, including a YouTube channel with more than 1.6 million subscribers and plans for a Radio 1 channel on the BBC’s iPlayer, adding the Rajar figures “only tell part of the story. I’m very pleased that in the traditionally difficult summer quarter, the Radio 1 Breakfast Show has 240,000 new listeners in the year.

“1Xtra reaches over 1 million people, and our audience is listening for longer.”

BBC Radio 2
BBC Radio 2, almost neck and neck with the whole of Bauer’s network, has a little over 15 million weekly listeners, a slight drop of -3.1% since the second quarter. The station, home to popular breakfast host Chris Evans and daytime debater Jeremy Vine, was up just 0.5% over the year. Chris Evans’ breakfast show continued to dominate the nationals despite posting -6.1% over the period, dropping by 600,000 weekly listeners, and -0.5% year on year, finishing the third quarter with a weekly reach of 9.3 million.

BBC Radio 3
In contrast to the -21.8% quarter on quarter (QoQ) drop that the station recorded last quarter, BBC Radio Three was up 4.2% this time round and up 2.8% over the year, Radio 3, whose new controller Alan Davey has vowed the station will not be “dumbed down” when he takes over in the new year.

BBC Radio 4
This quarter saw BBC Radio 4 (including 4 Extra) improve its reach by 1.2% to overtake BBC Radio 1 (which dropped -2.5%). In a triumph of politics and culture over pop songs and youth, BBC Radio 4 (including 4 Extra) has a weekly reach just shy of 11 million listeners. BBC Radio 1 has almost 10.6 million. Maintaining its second position, with a weekly reach of 6.7 million listeners, was the breakfast show. Radio 4 had 10.6 million listeners each week on average, with 6.7 million tuning in to the Today programme, marginally down year on year. Radio 4 Extra was the second biggest digital-only station behind 6 Music, with 1.63 million listeners.

BBC Radio 5Live (and Sports Extra)

Radio 5 Live had 5.8 million listeners, down 5.2% on last year. After a summer of sport, BBC Radio 5 Live sports extra has seen quarterly growth leap 32.3% to over 1.2 million.

BBC 6 Music
BBC 6 Music was up 5.4%, quarter on quarter, to over 1.9 million listeners. Over the year, the station witnessed a 15.2% increase. Lauren Laverne has helped the BBC Radio 6 Music to its biggest-ever audience of nearly 2 million listeners. In a sign of the changing way people are listening to the radio, a record 27% of listening for 6 Music was online or via smartphone and tablet apps, the most of any station and more than four times the industry average of 6.4%.The new audience figures come a week after Labour MP Tom Watson said 6 Music, which is currently available only on digital, should be given Radio 3’s valuable FM slot because it had more listeners. 6 Music has more than tripled its audience since the BBC said it would close the station in 2010, only to be given a reprieve by the BBC Trust after an unprecedented protest by listeners.

BBC Radio Scotland is down 2% on the year and 8.9% on the previous three months. Other Scottish stations reported some extremely impressive figures, such as Smooth Radio Glasgow (up 36.9%), Original 106 (up 35%) and Moray Firth Radio (up 10%).


BBC Radio Ulster/ Foyle remains the most listened to radio station in Northern Ireland, with an average weekly audience of 536,000 listeners – approximately 36.1% of the population (Aged 15 plus). BBC Radio Ulster/Foyle’s average weekly reach figures have increased by 3,000 year on year (with 533,000 in Quarter Three, 2013) and by 25,000 listeners quarter on quarter (with 511,000 in Quarter Two, 2014).

Programming broadcast on BBC Radio Foyle, received an average weekly audience of 44,000 listeners. The average weekly reach this time last year was 38,000 listeners (Quarter Three, 2013) and this time last quarter the average weekly reach was 41,000 listeners (Quarter Two, 2014).



talkSPORT is up 5.3% year on year and has a weekly reach of more than 3.1 million. The flagship breakfast show, hosted by Alan Brazil, achieved its highest ever figures.

Bauer Radio

Still out-performing BBC Radio 2 for a third consecutive quarter after the acquisition of Absolute Radio at the end of last year, Bauer Radio’s total portfolio saw a slight gain of 1.8% from the second quarter, recording more 16.2 million weekly listeners. However, over the last 12 months, the network has seen a more substantial 13.3% growth rate. Bauer’s Passion Portfolio (including Absolute, Magic and HeatRadio) – saw a huge 35.5% rise over the last 12 months to reach over 10.2 million listeners each week.

Absolute Radio

Total Absolute Radio Network, which saw some unwelcome drops in the second quarter, was back on form, recording yearly growth of 18.2% and a 6.5% QoQ growth. The station now has a weekly reach of more than 4 million.

Increased listenership by 27.3% year on year to 965,000.

Magic 105.4 continues to perform strongly in London with 2 million listeners, ahead of its national launch on DAB in Jan 2015..

KISS UK continues to grow, now with 4.9 million listeners (+5% yoy). In London, KISS 100 is number one for 15-24, 15-34 and 15-44 year olds in both hours and share against all radio stations including BBC.

Other Bauer:

  • Manchester’s Key 103 now reaches 507k listeners (+28.4% yoy).
  • Newcastle’s Metro Radio has grown its audience to 446,000 (up 2% qoq).
  • West Sound, Radio Borders and Moray Firth also recorded year on year audience increases.

Global Radio

Total Global Radio UK has maintained its dominance over the national stations and networks, recording very little change since the second quarter (-0.7%). The network has more than 21.2 million listeners, on average, each week. Over the last year the network has seen its reach grow 4.1%

Classic FM

Classic FM is down -11% QoQ to lose a little under 200,000 weekly listeners.

The former London talk station that has gone nationwide and is home to phone-in shows with Nick Clegg, Boris Johnson, Nigel Farage and Harriet Harman, had 1.28 million listeners, marginally up on the previous quarter.


Heart Network (UK) also put in a strong performance over the year, up 20% (just over 9 million listeners), despite an almost static quarter with growth of just 0.1%. The overall performance is due to the re-branding of stations to Heart following the acquisition of Global Radio and Real and Smooth Limited.


In the battle for London listeners Global Radio’s Capital held on to the number one spot among commercial stations, but only just. Capital had an average weekly audience of just under 2 million despite losing nearly 8% of its audience year on year. Capital was ahead of Bauer’s Magic, breathing down its neck on 1.96 million, and Magic’s sister station Kiss, with 1.8 million.

Smooth Radio

Smooth Radio Network – which re-branded Gold stations as Smooth – continues to count the benefits of the move after recording growth of 22.8% over the year. The network was up 2% in quarter three and now has a weekly audience of almost 4.7 million.


KMFM has recorded one of its best ever audiences – with listener numbers and tune-in times on the rise. Now more than 185,000 adults listen every week – an increase of 15,000 from the last quarter, and nearly 19% up on this time last year. Listeners are now tuning in an average 7.7 hours each week. Doing particularly well is the new breakfast show with Garry and Emma, which has added 23,000 listeners – or 40% – since it launched in the summer. All other weekday shows have also seen an excellent growth in listening numbers since the last survey.

The markettiers4dc team are thrilled to have picked up the trophy for the best healthcare campaign with Pegasus and Bayer Animal Health at the PRWeek Awards last night.

We were recognised for the Slime Watch campaign which was part of wider activity to raise awareness of lungworm amongst UK dog owners and drive sales of Bayer’s lungworm prevention product, Advocate.

The PRWeek awards ceremony was held at the Grosvenor House hotel in London and celebrated the best people, agencies and campaigns of 2014.

Helen Moore, markettiers4dc Managing Director, commented: “It is brilliant to be recognised by the industry, particularly in an awards programme as prestigious as the PRWeek Awards. The Slime Watch campaign is a great example of the creativity and results that can be achieved through collaborative working between in-house teams and agencies”.
