Darwin radio survey

Radio ratings for Darwin will be released today.  Local stations HOT 100 FM and Mix 104.9, part of the 100% family owned Grant Broadcasters radio network, will be part of today’s survey.  
The last survey for Darwin was released in June 2016 and today’s results will enable the stations to look at listening patterns over the last 12 months. The latest Darwin radio research was conducted by Xtra Insights from 21 August to 9 September 2017.
HOT FM is the innovative and younger focused station, while Mix 1049 is the “Everything Top End” feel good station.

“HOT FM and MIX 104.9 are a big part of the Darwin community, the research will provide advertisers and stations with vital information on who’s listening,” said Ms Joan Warner, chief executive officer of Commercial Radio Australia.

Commercial Radio Australia introduced a new system for regional radio ratings from 2014, which allows smaller radio markets to undertake more regular, reliable and cost-effective audience measurement. 

The Xtra Insights survey results will be available on the Radio It’s A Love Thing website at 10.00 am AEST.
