2GB’s Ben Fordham extends lead in Sydney radio ratings

After enduring a shock mid-year slump, 2GB host Ben Fordham appears to have steadied his breakfast ship. The AM broadcaster again extended his morning lead in Sydney’s latest radio ratings.

Fordham’s audience rose one percentage point for a total audience share of 19.8 per cent, ahead of ABC Sydney’s Robbie Buck and Wendy Harmer (15.9 per cent; up 0.2 points) and KIIS 1065’s Kyle and Jackie O (10.7 per cent; down 0.1 points). 2GB is owned by Nine, the owner of this masthead.

The breakfast result echoes the overall audience picture with 2GB remaining Sydney’s number one station (15.7 per cent; down 0.7 points), ahead of ABC Sydney (12.3 per cent; down 0.7 points) and WSFM (8.1 per cent; up 0.5 points).

The result in drive stayed similarly unchanged from last survey, with ABC Sydney’s Richard Glover (12.2 per cent; down 0.6 points), leading Smooth FM 95.3’s Byron Webb (9.5 per cent; up 0.3 points) and KIIS 1065’s Will & Woody (8.2 per cent; up 0.8 points).

Tuesday’s ratings, the penultimate survey of the year, took in the periods August 15 to September 18 and September 26 to October 30.

More to come.
