Across the country, more and more people are tuning in to Smooth – according to new audience figures released today.
The latest industry figures are out – and they contain some very welcome news for us here at Smooth.
140,000 new listeners are tuning into the Smooth Radio network across the country, and enjoying our Relaxing Music Mix.
Kate Garraway’s mid-morning show is now the choice of 2.2 million people every week, and 2.1 million listeners are choosing to spend their afternoon with Paul Phear on Smooth on weekday afternoons. Both Kate and Paul have seen their listener figures surge forward in the last three months – and the audience is up year-on-year, too.
In the North West, meanwhile, Smooth Breakfast continues to grow: Darren Parks now wakes up more than half a million people – that’s an increase of 62,000 in the last year. And the Smooth Drive Home continues to build on its success: Carlos now reaches over 400,000 listeners. These new figures mark nine years of being the region’s commercial station with the most listeners.
In the evening, over 1.1 million people across the UK now join Chris Skinner for the Smooth Sanctuary at Seven – an increase of 29,000 in the last three months alone. And at the weekend, there are new listeners for Myleene Klass, Tina Hobley and Andrew Castle, whose Great American Songbook welcomes 15,000 new listeners to Smooth on a Sunday evening.
It’s an exciting time to be a Smooth listener – thank you so much for joining us!
