Underlining it’s prominence in Glasgow and the West, Clyde 1’s total hours are up from 4,362,000 in the previous quarter to 5,098,000 - an incredible increase of 736,000 hours.
Clyde 1’s ‘Bowie@Breakfast’ has also had a great quarter, with weekly listeners increasing by 43,000, with 331,000 weekly listeners this quarter compared to 288,000 in the previous quarter.
Meanwhile, Clyde 2 has also enjoyed excellent results, adding 17,000 weekly listeners to give the station a total of 128,000 listeners tuning in every week this quarter.
Graham Bryce, Managing Director of Bauer Radio in Scotland, said: “Radio Clyde has once again proven itself to be Glasgow and the West’s favourite station. The strong results for Clyde 1 and Clyde 2, and in particular the successes of Clyde 1’s Superscoreboard and ‘Bowie@Breakfast’, highlights that as a station we know our audience and we continue to deliver the content that our listeners tune in to hear.
“These results are also a fitting legacy to our much-loved Content Director, Brian Paige, who passed away in July. Our successes are testament to Brian’s outstanding work at the station and the mantra he instilled in each and every one of us about doing the basics brilliantly
“Radio remains an exciting place to be with recent reports highlighting that it is the fastest growing medium with 12.5% growth*, putting it ahead of all other platforms, including the internet, for advertising spend. We’ve just announced the appointment of Lynsey Collins as Sales Director at Radio Clyde and we are looking forward to her building on the successes of the station.”
