Birthday celebrations are a big hit
Radio Fox achieved an average audience share of 50% for its birthday celebrations, according to audience data supplied by Hospedia.
The audience share peaked at 59% for our big birthday request show on 23rd April, when one of our listeners won a pair of tickets to see Leona Lewis in Nottingham. In terms of numbers of listeners, the programme attracted our biggest recorded audience since January 2011 and had more listeners than the other five stations available on the wards combined.
There were big audiences too for our other non request programmes, with all our special birthday shows achieving an audience share of 40% or more. Our countdown of the most requested songs of the last 25 years on Monday attracted the biggest recorded audience for a non request programme in 12 years with an audience share of 57%, while Bob’s Birthday Breakfast, which included an interview with University Hospitals Of Leicester Chairman Martin Hindle, achieving an audience share of 51%.
Station Director Steve Hack is delighted with the audience figures. “Our 25th birthday was one of the most memorable days in our history and it is fantastic that so many people tuned in to enjoy the celebrations. Thank you to everyone who tuned in, asked for a request or took part in our competitions.”
