Nine’s catch up podcasts also reign supreme with on-demand audiences with Ben Fordham Live and the Ray Hadley Morning Show each posting listener growth of 44% YoY, while footy fans are continuing to flock to 3AW for the very best in AFL commentary, with 3AW Football catch up podcasts listeners up 17% YoY.

Nine Radio Head of Content, Greg Byrnes, said “These numbers highlight talk radio’s unequivocal dominance in live streaming and catch up and show our audience is only getting bigger.

“We know Australians turn to talk in times of crisis, and that’s been reinforced with recent breaking news events, but they also rely on us for entertainment, excitement and analysis. And with the footy in full swing and the Paris Olympic Games now just 72 days away, our streaming audience will be unprecedented.”

Nine’s Director of Sales, Total Audio, Ashley Earnshaw, said: “The future is bright for Nine Audio, with even greater audiences seeking out our content through our apps via connected devices and across our podcast content.

“Our dominance in digital audiences continues to create full funnel opportunities for brands to blend the reach of radio with data-led targeting capabilities, creating unparalleled impact and effectiveness for brands.”

I thought everything was supposed to moving out of the Media House at some point.

So did I. They keep mentioning how the rest of the building is empty and they are the only ones left in there.

Shane McInnes hosting 3AW Wide World of Sports on Wednesday, with Sam McClure taking two days off.

EDIT: Jimmy Bartel hosting Thursday’s show.


Anyone else’s 9 apps keep crashing? All of them seem to be. I’ve tried 4BC, 3AW and 2GB.

No issues for me even though I don’t tend to use the app I use the direct streaming link. You can try and clear the app cache and make sure you have the latest version from the app store or Google Play store.

Can’t stand him these days, as can’t most going off social media and the like, his Harley Reid comments on that podcast hilarious now!
