Perhaps a lot of audience sampling 2SM tonight,? No broadcast of the Queen’s funeral.
I know it’s not the prettiest, but it’s nice to see the 2SM website being updated almost daily lately.
Yes i agree, at least some small signs of progress. Now the website is up to about 2005 standard. Keep going 2SM webmaster!
Gary Stewart at night on 2SM … how pleasant and refreshing. Seems Graeme Gilbert has finally left the building. Gary is a great broadcaster and genuinely interested in his listeners … polar opposite of GG. Loving the change. May also help explain why 2GB nights with John Stanley had a sizeable drop this survey? 2SM now has a reason to listen at nights with Gary Stewart.
Isn’t he still just filling in?
Bummer … i thought it was too good to be true longer term. If they were smart (?) BOG would leave Gary on nights to build an audience and knock off more listeners from GB. I don’t mind John Stanley but that show of his is so tightly scripted with this segment and that segment in the same pattern. Gary Stewart does good open talkback and plays a bit of music in between … perfect. And without the sniping attitude and biases of GG.
Whilst 2SM does not participate in the ratings and are included in the “others” category I have always had a gut feel they have more local listeners than we imagine particularly in the case of John Laws versus Ray Hadley. If this is true Hadley would have a smaller percentage of listeners than the ratings indicate. I particularly like the talk back programmes weekend afternoons and nights and the music segments…Just my thoughts
Knowing how Bill works, I doubt we’ll hear Gilbert back on the airwaves at all.
He’ll probably slowly push him out.
