Both RTE programmes have opened up a listenership gap on the Today FM programme as can be seen in Figure 1 below. Just over two years ago there was very little difference between the three programmes. In the first quarter of 2013 the three programmes attracted a combined listenership figure of 396,000 (with 136,000 for RTE Sunday, 133,000 for Today Sat, and 127,000 for RTE Sat). A year later the combined listenership figure had risen by 28%. This is a substantial increase. Even more impressive was the 54% increase delivered by RTE Saturday Sport over the period.
