- Second EGM Wave: All Radio Stations Lose Listeners Less Than a Month Before Elections
Carlos Alsina is going to close the year in style. After receiving the Golden Antenna and the Francisco Cerecedo Journalism Award, the third wave of the General Media Study has brought with it the best news for the host of Onda Cero's Más de Uno: it grows 130,000 listeners and achieves its best year-end in its history. More than 1.5 million people follow him every day.
A success that the journalist also shares with his channel, Onda Cero, which also achieves its best closing of the year since 2016 with 180,000 more listeners in this third wave and exceeding two million daily listeners.
The third wave of the EGM actually brings good news for generalist radio, which is growing again, after its fall in the previous study. In the second wave it stood at 23,526,000, and in this third wave the number of listeners has grown to 23,685,000, 159,000 more people. The reason, according to experts in the radio sector, is due to the political interest in the elections, the failed investiture of Feijóo and the investiture of Pedro Sánchez.
SER continues to lead and not only manages to retain the bar of 4 million listeners, but adds 500,000 more to 4,610,000 daily listeners. Cope, on the other hand, also experienced growth: 300,000 more listeners to 3,720,000. Meanwhile, RNE narrowly lost one million listeners and remained at 924,000. On the other hand, esRadio, the radio station of Federico Jiménez Losantos, which brings together 656,000 listeners in the second wave of the EGM, grows in this third wave to 680,000.
In the mornings Àngels Barceló continues to be the most listened to with 3,349,000 daily listeners, 514,000 more listeners connected to Hoy por hoy after having experienced a sharp drop in the previous wave that in this one has more than compensated.
Carlos Herrera also adds listeners to 2,832,000 daily listeners, 229,000 more people, although the distance with its main competitor, Angels Barceló, is widening. Just a year ago, the duel was much closer (124,000) with Herrera on the verge of giving the sorpasso he has never achieved. While Alsina, with its 130,000 more listeners, already exceeds the million and a half followers who listen to Más de uno every morning
RNE's mornings remain at 769,000 listeners after losing 6,000 listeners from one wave to the next.
