There has been a large increase in the number of listeners tuning to BBC Radio Northampton each week, according to the latest official figures released today by Radio Joint Audience Research (RAJAR).


The figures show that 97,000 people in Northamptonshire listen to Radio Northampton each week - that's an extra 11,000 listeners since March 2004.


The station's share of all radio listening hours in its catchment area has also increased from 11.9 per cent to 13.8% during the same period.


Laura Moss, Editor, Radio Northampton, says: "This is fantastic news and a good indication that our listeners like the new programme schedule. The new breakfast sequence is proving to be very popular, with Bernie Keith keeping the county amused and thoroughly entertained each weekday morning.


"I'm really pleased for the Radio Northampton team; it's a cracking achievement and is testament to the hard work that everyone has put in."


Andy Griffee, Controller, BBC English Regions, adds: "Congratulations to Radio Northampton 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."
