More good news for BBC Radio Kent

BBC Radio Kent's listeners are tuning in for longer - more than 12 hours a week - and the station reaches one in four of the county's population, according to the latest listening figures issued by RAJAR today.

Managing Editor, Robert Wallace, says: "It's great to think that so many people in the county appreciate the hard work put in by all the team at BBC Radio Kent.

"I'm sure our continued success is based on the fact that we get to the heart of our listeners' communities."

In one year, from June 2002 to June 2003, the station has increased its weekly listening figures from 282,000 to 317,000.

Notes to Editors

The statistics, based on April, May and June of this year, are independently compiled for broadcasters by Radio Joint Audience Research (RAJAR).

This is the station's highest reach to date at 25.1% of the population of Kent.
