Radio Ratings Survey #2 results are in and NOVA Entertainment is the big winner, while triple j’s listeners have cooled off expectedly following the Hottest 100 boost in Survey #1.

“With triple j being all over Australia, this survey shows we’re quite steady with 1.926 million people listening per week in the 5 surveyed cities, where 2016’s average was 1.937 million per week,” said Ollie Wards, triple j Content Director.

“Every year triple j dips in Survey 2 after the Hottest 100 boost, so while some of the results today are down, they’re not surprising.”
