Programming bosses have returned 2018 with a line up of new programs, but for most Networks, the immediate impact didn’t quite go to plan

The first radio ratings survey was just released and the news is not so good for ARN’s brekkie and drive teams across KIIS FM in Sydney and Melbourne. Audiences declines across both sessions averaged between 1.5-2%.

The decision to axe Melbourne’s talent and launch a brand new drive show was part of a transformative change in strategy for the network.

At SCA 2DayFM moved on to its 10th and 11th breakfast show hosts for Sydney breakfast since the departure of Kyle and Jackie O.

Triple M also launched its first national drive show since the departure of various co-hosts across the country.

Across the AMs Macquarie Media announced it would axe its Talking Lifestyle stations.
