Just weeks after receiving the PPI outstanding achievement award, the TodayFM presenter today got the news 12,000 more people have tuned into his breakfast show, according to the latest JNLR figures.

The station's flagship breakfast show attracted an average of 180,000 listeners over the last year.

Rival Hector's show on 2FM attracted 124,000.

There was more good news for the stations as Ray D'Arcy has widened his lead over Ryan Tubridy - this time last year the gap was 74,000, it now stands at 79,000.

D'Arcy's show attracts an average of 231,000 listeners while Tubridy attracts 152,000.

The 'Today Show' which was hosted by Pat Kenny and is now helmed by Sean O'Rouke, has pulled in 334,000 listeners over the past year.

Kenny's Newstalk programme has pulled in 78,000 listeners, however the figures only cover his first month on air, an accurate figure will not be available until the next batch of results.

All data is reported as 'average' listening data for a 12- month period.
