BBC Radio Norfolk is today celebrating becoming the
most popular BBC local radio station on mainland England.
Independent research released today reveals that just
over 36 per cent of adults in Norfolk tune in to listen to the radio
station each week.
The Radio Joint Audience Research (RAJAR) figures also
show that on average 250,000 people tune in each week - that's 27,000
new listeners compared to a year ago.
Radio Norfolk Editor David Clayton says: "It's
brilliant news, and is a testament to great team work here at Radio
"We have made a few changes to the shows in the
last year and people really seem to like the results. Our new breakfast
show, presented by Stephen Bumfrey, is doing particularly
well, appealing to a wide audience across Norfolk."
Andy Griffee, Controller, BBC English Regions, says:
"Congratulations to Radio Norfolk on their latest results. With nearly
eight million listeners tuning in each week, BBC Local Radio in England
continues to go from strength to strength, providing a strong voice
for local communities right across the country."
