Rajars: Scottish success for GMG and Talk 107

Real Radio Scotland has achieved its highest ever listening figures, gaining more than 60,000 listeners in the last year.

The GMG-owned which employs 10 journalists in its 24-hour newsroom and runs a nightly discussion show, is listened to by 762,000 people – an increase of 8.7 per cent.

Meanwhile, the first all-talk commercial radio station to launch in the UK in more than 10 years is gradually picking up listeners, increasing its weekly reach by around 50 per cent in the last three months.

Edinburgh's Talk 107, which launched in February last year, has gained an extra 11,000 listeners in the last quarter – up from 23,000 to 34,000.

The station, which is owned by UTV, had set a first-year target of 140,000 listeners.

UTV's nationwide talk station, TalkSport, is marginally down since last quarter but up on the year. It is listened to by 2.24 million adults in a typical week, up 2.8 per cent from last year's figure of 2.17 million.
