U105 records listenership increase

U105 has recorded another rise in their weekly reach, to 136,000 listeners, according to the latest industry ratings just released. The number tuning in to U105.8FM has grown by 28,000 listeners (26%) compared to the same period last year.

Peter McVerry, U105’s Station Manager, said: “We’re delighted with our growth across the past 12 months with more and more people enjoying our superb mix of music, news and chat. After just over four years on air, we’ve gone from being a new entrant in the market to being a major player on the Northern Ireland radio scene. Our fantastic line-up including Maurice Jay, Frank Mitchell, Carolyn Stewart, George Jones and Jerry Lang produce an eclectic mix of music and talk every day with Frank’s phone-in show from 9 to 12 every weekday morning proving particularly popular. We have exciting plans for further growth for the station this year including some major promotions that build on our success to date. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all of our listeners, advertisers and the team here at U105 for their support.”

U105 broadcasts to the Greater Belfast area, including Lisburn, Antrim, Bangor, Dungannon, Banbridge and Carrickfergus.
