Peak FM’s latest audience figures released

There has been a huge increase in the both the number of people listening and how long they listen for according to Peak FM‘s latest audience figures.

Listening hours, published by RAJAR, have shot up by 57% in just the last 3 months to 632,000 beating BBC Radio One in the region. Peak FM is the most listened to commercial radio station in North Derbyshire.

Tim Smith, Peak FM’s Content Controller is delighted: “Radio is a competitive industry but we love Chesterfield and North Derbyshire and our team love getting out and about. There are lots of stations to choose, some national, some regional but we’ve always prided ourselves on our doorstep.”

“This tremendous result is testament to the hard work of our journalists, producers and of course our presenters. Our Breakfast Show is quite fresh; Becky Hayes joined Ricky on the show just a couple of months back and in that short time they’ve been to all corners of North Derbyshire, given out prestigious awards, challenged Max George to the In My Feelings challenge and raised charity funds for the Sick Childrens Trust.”

“We’ve made our music mix a lot better with a blend of classic 80s and 90s as well as all the latest stuff, been nominated for a Sky News award for our journalism and with the release of these figures it’s so exciting to see more and more Chesterfield people switching us on! We really appreciate people doing that and sharing their news with us”.
