RAJAR Figures (Summary)


Quarter 3/ 2022

RAJAR Q3/ 2022


The very latest RAJAR figures, for the Third Quarter of 20222, are out. The key finding is that every full-time national BBC Radio station has lost listeners in the last 12 months, whilst digital commercial stations show impressive growth. There are now 49.7 million adults, or 88.8 % of the adult (15+) UK population, who tuned in to the radio each week.


The total average number of weekly hours listened to the radio for this period is up at 1.02 billion from 998 million in Q2 2022. On average, a listener tunes into 20.6 hours of live radio per week, up from 20.4; and commercial radio now reaches 5.2m listeners more than BBC radio – an all-time record.


In terms of reach, 41 million adults aged 15+ are now tuning in to radio via a digitally enabled platform (DAB, DTV, Online, App, Smart Speaker) each week. 66% of the population claim to own or have access to a DAB radio.
