Rajar has released the latest radio-listening figures for the United Kingdom. It says that 49 million adults, or 88% of the adult U.K. population — those aged 15 and older — tuned in to their selected radio stations each week in the second quarter of 2022. Most of those — 41 million — use a digital device. Thirty-two percent listen to live radio via a smartphone or tablet — little change compared to Q1 2022.
The total average number of weekly hours listened to the radio for this period is 998 million.
On average, a typical U.K. listener tunes in to 20.4 hours of live radio per week, mostly at home.
