GfK has today released the results of DAB+ Survey #6 for 2018.

ARN’s The Edge Digital had an 8,000 audience surge in Sydney to reclaim it’s #1 spot, rising to a 102,000 cume in People 10+. Last survey’s winner ABC Jazz showed a -12,000 loss, ending up with 96,000.

Survey #6 sees OLDSKOOL HITS take #1 in Melbourne with an audience of 88,000 (+21,000) beating out last survey’s victor Double J, which grew a modest 3,000 to end up on a total cume of 77,000. Both stations are still comfortably ahead of their closest competition Coles Radio and Triple M Classic Rock (64,000 and 62,000, respectively).

The 80s iHeartRadio has taken the crown in Queensland, enjoying a +4,000 audience increase to bring them to 40,000 cume listeners. Previous #1, Coles Radio, saw a -9,000 person fall from last survey leaving them on a total cume of 35,000.

Over in Adelaide, The 90s iHeartRadio was one of the few stations that saw an increase, gaining +3,000 listeners to place them at 25,000 cume. Runners-up Double J’s audience grew +1,000 to leave them sitting at 19,000.

No surprises in Perth with smoothfm sinching a fourth consecutive #1  with 34,000, despite listenership decreasing -2,000 people from the last survey. Both runners-up saw notable growth, with Double J sitting on 30,000 (+6,000) and BUDDHA HITS gaining +8,000 listeners to end up on a cume of 28,000.
