Radio Ratings: Gold Coast’s Sea FM makes ground but can’t catch Hot Tomato in Survey 3
Hot Tomato has held on to the title of Gold Coast’s #1 station in the third GfK radio survey of 2017.
Despite a +1% gain made by Sea FM to now sit at 14.4%, Hot Tomato is still sitting pretty at the top, with 16.9% (-0.2%) among 10+ listeners. This also marks the fourth consecutive survey that Hot Tomato has been number one among people 10+.
The station continues to dominate breakfast, with Flan & Emily Jade with Christo holding strong with 17.8% listenership, slipping only slightly (-0.1%).
GOLD FM also made ground in the breakfast session, gaining +0.6% to finish with 11.5%.
But one of the biggest pieces of news for the survey is Sea FM claiming the number one show in the drive session (4-7pm), with Hit’s national drive duo Hamish & Andy edging out previous titleholders Galey, Mal & Moyra, who dropped -1.2% to finish on 16.4%.
Other big moves for this survey include:
