Canberra Survey #1: Mix 106.3 return to the top; impressive growth for triple j
A new year sees a new #1 station in the nation’s capital, as well as massive growth for triple j.
Mix 106.3 returned to the top position overall, stealing the crown back from ABC Canberra with a +1.7 increase to 18.1%. The Kristen & Wilko Show has found its stride as well, claiming the title of #1 Breakfast show.
While triple j’s Survey 1 growth in metro surveys is traditionally credited to Hottest 100 listeners, Canberra’s survey period falls after that January date. The improvement seen across all sessions, bolstered by a +5 bump for Breakfast’s Ben & Liam (up from 5.7% to 10.7%), could indicate genuine growth for surveys to come.
Changes to national drive lineups also had an impact, with Canberra listeners opting for local host Courts on Mix 106.3 (up 2.4%) over previous #1 Drive station hit 104.7 and their new show with Hughesy & Kate.
