 Lee Roberts, Commercial Director of Share Radio said, “Because of the way RAJAR samples audiences we have to wait until next year for our first national data. RAJAR advised that we undertake special research from their contracted research supplier, Ipsos MORI. This gives us reassurance that Share Radio is growing in line with our own forecasts and has a very exciting future for listeners, advertisers and our investors. On top of the recent information that we have shown a threefold increase in on-demand listening, data showing that we have more than doubled our original London only audience is very welcome. It shows there is a very real market for an alternative to BBC Radio 4.”
