The latest figures from industry body Rajar show that 24% of all radio listening in the UK in the first quarter of this year was digital, up from 20.9% in Q4 last year. That’s a lot of DAB radio Christmas gifts, presumably. The figures are broken down: DAB accounts for 15.1% of listening, digital TV for 4%, and the internet for 2.9%. BBC stations including the under-threat 6 Music grew strongly, while commercial entrants like Absolute Radio Classic Rock, NME Radio, Jazz FM and Absolute 80s also did well. “These are extremely encouraging results and represent a real milestone in the UK’s transition to a digital future for radio,” says Digital Radio UK boss Ford Ennais.
