Chris Evans’ new breakfast radio show made a record by receiving 9.53 million listeners per week in Q1 2010 – the biggest audience for any U.K. radio show under current measuring methodology, which began in 1999. Terry Wogan’s final RAJAR figure for Q4 2009 matched his own previous record, but that was 8.1 million. Evans – whose show has been heavily promoted with BBC TV promos – helped lift Radio 2’s total audience to a new high of 14.57 million weekly listeners – up from 13.46 million last year. National top 40 station Radio 1 had a record high of 11.74 million listeners, up from 11.07 million a year earlier.
