Largest radio stations

Despite Classic FM reaching approximately 5.3 million sets of ears during the first quarter of 2019, it was in fact the fifth most listened to radio station in the UK. The top four spots were all taken up by the BBC, with BBC Radio 2 topping the list by more than four million listeners.

Radio reach

Between the first quarter of 2011 and the first quarter of 2019, the overall time spent listening to the radio in the UK did not decrease as much as could be expected. Each week, approximately ninety percent of the UK’s population is reached by radio, with the average listener still spending over twenty hours per week listening to the radio.
