Thanks A Million! LBC 97.3 Celebrates Record Figures
Thursday 1st August 2013
LBC 97.3's celebrating record audience figures in its 40th year - adding a quarter of a million new listeners in the last 12 months.
London's Biggest Conversation has reached 1.047m listeners - that's an increase of more than a quarter of a million listeners since this time last year
Nick Ferrari has increased his audience by 77,000 people – making it London's number one commercial radio breakfast show.
Ferrari has added 129,000 average weekly listeners to his breakfast show over the past year, to 659,000.
Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg congratulated Nick on his figures - leading to this hilarious putdown.
James Rea, Managing Editor of LBC, said: "To scale new heights for LBC 97.3 in its 40th year is a spectacular performance and testament to the brilliant team we have.
"Under Global Radio, the station is going from strength to strength with agenda-setting programmes such as Call Clegg and Ask Boris which puts us in a solid position for the next 40 years."
On top of that, LBC 97.3 was named UK Station of the Year at the recent Arqiva Awards, the prestigious awards for Commercial Radio.
Thank you very much to all our listeners - all one million of you!
