Such a weird market Canberra. I personally don’t buy the figures for ABC Classic. I know people are different there, but they can’t be that different.

7.2% of 10-17s??! Someone’s having a lend… :face_with_raised_eyebrow:

Yeah I didn’t even see that age breakdown. That’s BS

Canberra’s survey is as boring as the choice of Canberra radio stations.

It’s 2024. Surely there should be 6x commercial choices in Canberra (Nova, ARN & SCA).

One of the shames of the ARN+SCA deal not happening is they could have sorted the market out - and given a proper Hit/KIIS and Triple M combo to the market, instead of the Hit/Mix combo which leaves no real option for a huge amount of listeners.

It rates well, but only really because the competition is poor and stuck on AM, though I suppose Mix Canberra shows ARN what local content can do…

It’s a shame they don’t do the Canberra survey like the Hobart one and put all the DAB stations in the mix - I wouldn’t be shocked if some of them are getting close to 2CC/2CA.
