Four out of five ain’t bad.

’s chief programming and marketing officer, Paul Jackson, spoke with TMN after Survey 7 results were released on Tuesday (November 12).

The network – which includes the Nova and smooth streams – claimed the #1 FM station in every market, except Melbourne, in the latest radio ratings.

Nova even toppled Mix 102.3 in Adelaide, where outgoing triple j Breakfast duo Ben Harvey and Liam Stapleton will call home in 2020.

Ben & Liam increased their breakfast share in Sydney to become one of triple j’s most successful Breakfast lineups.

Harvey and Stapleton finished on a 5.5% share of People 10+ this week, up 1.3% on Survey 6. They started their hosting run in 2016 with 5.3% in Sydney.

Jackson says Melbourne will be his top priority between now and year’s end, with music a major focus in the always-on battle for market share.
