Triple J’s Ben & Liam Are Slaying The Radio Ratings Game, Just FYI

Written by Emmy Mack on July 10, 2018

After some initial teething issues, triple J‘s upstart breakfast presenters Ben & Liam are now on fiyahhh and they’ve got the ratings to prove it.

A year-and-a-bit into their tenure as your friendly neighbourhood weekday brekkie bros, Ben Harvey and Liam Stapleton have nabbed big wins in every major city, whipping commercial radio’s proverbial arse in basically every metro market.

As Pedestrian points out, Ben & Liam’s ratings have surged by a healthy & nutritious 1%, bringing their share of the audience to a robust 5.2%.

It’s enough of a boost to propel the J’s into the 5th spot overall in the Sydney metro market, overtaking the top 40-blasters at 2DayFM, whose celeb brekky squad of Em Rusciano, Ed Kavalee, and Grant Denyer plummeted by 0.6%.

The comeback kids continued to slay the numbers game in the nation’s other metro markets, including Melbourne (up 0.2% to 4.1% overall), Brisbane (up 1 point to 7.4%), Adelaide (an increase of 0.3% to 5.1%) and a steady share of 7.8% in Perth.

On ya m8s. Matt & Alex would be proud.
