Wendy Harmer proves she’s still the Queen of Sydney Breakfast
Her commercial radio days might be long gone, but Wendy Harmer is still a force to be reckoned with in the Sydney radio market.
She spent 11 years hosting 2DayFM Breakfast, and in that time the show rated #1 on FM in 84 of 88 surveys.
Now on ABC Breakfast with Robbie Buck, Survey #1 yesterday saw Wendy come in second overall, only behind the juggernaut of Alan Jones on 2GB.
Among those in her wake include Grant, Ed & Ash on her former station 2DayFM, as well as KIIS FM’s Kyle & Jackie O, the eventual heirs to her 2Day Breakfast throne.
ABC Breakfast finished Survey #1 of 2019 with a 10.4% share of listening among People 10+ (+0.1).
Wendy and Robbie’s show could also stand to benefit from the potential departure of Alan Jones from the market, with the long-serving 2GB host’s contract up midway through 2019.
