Coles Radio extends lead as Australia’s #1 DAB+ station

Former Assistant Editor

Coles Radio has the most listeners nationally on DAB+ Digital, retaining strong numbers in GfK’s third ratings survey of the year.

It extended its overall lead, reaching a huge 254,000 listeners across the country (+21,000).

Coles Radio’s numbers are the highest achieved by any DAB+ station since surveys began.

ABC’s Double J remains in second place, also gaining listeners to reach a total of 221,000 (+16,000).

Looking at each market in isolation, Coles is unsurprisingly #1 in Sydney (78,000), Melbourne (79,000) and Brisbane (47,000).

Meantime, The 90s iHeartRadio is the top station in Adelaide with 29,000 cume listeners.

In Perth, ABC Grandstand was tied with Smooth for the #1 spot, each with 36,000 listeners.

Why aren’t 2CH listed, they are on DAB and I must say, sounding red hot with the new Classic Hits Format.

Neil it’s only “DAB Only” stations listed in the DAB ratings. 2CH is listed in the main ratings as it’s also on AM
