KOFM remain #1 in the market but the gap is much closer to NXFM at #2 (now only 2 points). The departing KOFM breakfast team, David & Tanya, notched up their 50th #1 result as a duo. A fitting end to a long career together in Newcastle. Tanya is staying on the show with a new co-host yet to be announced.

Over at NXFM, all key dayparts are up including Sophie, Heath & Normy in their first survey together. They are up 1.9 to 16.7 and #2. (Sophie filled in for Heidi Anderson while she was on Big Brother and then took over officially when she moved to 92.9).

New FM have also had a good result, going up in all shifts across the station.
