Listener Figures up for Monumental Bellend's show


Chris Moyles hits audience high


More people are tuning into Chris Moyles's BBC Radio 1 breakfast show than ever, according to latest figures.


His morning show attracted an average of 6.79 million listeners a week between April and June, according to Radio Joint Audience Research (Rajar).


That was up 470,000 on the previous quarter. Radio 1 saw its total audience rise by 700,000 to 10.4 million.


Radio 2 also saw an increase, with Terry Wogan and Ken Bruce helping swell its ratings to 13.29 million.


Bruce had a particularly successful period, achieving a record audience of 6.64 million for his mid-morning programme exactly 20 years after it began.


Hard-fought battle


In his first set of ratings since taking over Radio 2's drivetime show from Johnnie Walker, Chris Evans recorded listener figures of 4.85 million a week.


His audience is down 150,000 compared with his predecessor's last show but is on a par with previous years.

Capital Radio's Johnny Vaughn remains London's top breakfast DJ, despite losing 111,000 listeners since the first three months of 2006.


In a hard-fought battle for the city's morning audience, his 852,000 audience puts him just ahead of Heart's Jamie Theakston with 820,000 and Magic's Neil Fox with 803,000.


Magic 105.4, however, has the largest overall share of total listening time with an average weekly audience of 1.87 million.


The UK has one of the largest radio audiences in the world, with more than 90% of the population tuning in each week.
