Two of Glasgow's most popular radio stations have fared remarkably well in the latest round of Rajar figures for Q3 2011.
Clyde 1, one of your Chamber's Platinum Partners, has increased its in year on year reach by 7.9% adding 41,000 weekly listeners to its broadcasts. They have increased their listening hours by 15.5%, with Clyde 1 and its sister station Radio Forth reaching well over 1m people each week.
The station has tried to ensure it continually delivers a refreshing mix of engaging content, even more hit music, showbiz and entertainment with a focus on locality, with some of radio's best know personalities.
Meanwhile, Capital FM Scotland, broadcasting from its base in Pacific Quay has increased its listeners by around 33,000 in the last three months. Contributing to these figures, asides from the success of the Des and Jennie Weekday Breakfast Show is the hiring of Adele Cunningham for the Saturday 8am - 12pm slow.
