The latest figures, which cover the period January to December 2012 show that the radio station has consolidated its position as the latest arrival to the competitive Dublin market place and now commands more than half the daily audience of national broadcasters Today FM and 2FM in Dublin.
CEO Kevin Branigan said, “We’re very happy with this latest set of results; we’ve seen our market position against these two long-running national stations grow significantly. This is a clear win for us and we expect this position to grow throughout 2013”.
Since Radio Nova first launched during 2010 the radio ratings – produced for the Industry by Ipsos/MRBI – have shown consistent growth for the station.
Kevin Branigan, CEO, also added: “We launched two years in the midst of recession and it’s clear that our music format and investment in our programming and marketing have hit the right note with listeners. From a standing start in 2010, we have made very respectable advances on long-established players, which is a tremendous achievement for us. We will continue this rapid growth into 2013 with significant investment in marketing and promotion."
