>Wogan’s shadow still cast over Radio 2 breakfast show

>Radio 2 breakfast show host Chris Evans is attracting less listeners than his predecessor Sir Terry Wogan. While Evans had 8.5 million listeners a week in his 7 until 9.30 slot between April and June, in the 7.30 to 9.30 slot that Wogan previously occupied he only got 8.08 million. This is 18,000 less than Wake Up to Wogan. Now VN is a big Evans fan, but this downturn will worry Beeb executives.

In other radio news, stats released by Rajar show another peak for BBC 6 Music. After surviving being chopped they got up to 1.19 million listeners, making 6music the most popular digital only station.

News stations 5live and Radio 4 benefited from an exciting General Election, getting their highest listening figures, including 10.4 weekly listeners for Radio 4.
