Community radio officially reaches 5.7 million Aussies per week
Community radio has been steadily growing over the first half of 2018 but it’s now hit a new milestone by clocking up 5.7 million weekly listeners.
It’s the highest national listenership on record and 10% increase on the listenership that was recorded in January of this year.
“These results reflect community radio’s role as a vital and growing part of the Australian media landscape,” Community Broadcasting Association of Australia‘s chief executive officer, Jon Bisset said.
“They are a testament to the incredible work of the 450+ stations across the country which support and broadcast local content and public interest journalism, provide a voice for diverse Australian communities and support our vibrant music and arts sectors.”
The results were found through telephone and online surveys of a representative sample of 15,000 Australians over the age of 15.
