Audiences Radio: France Inter smiles, Europe 1 suffers

The radio hearing measure for the period January-March 2022, unveiled Thursday, April 21 by Mediamétrie, confirms the supremacy of the public station, and the deconfiture of the station now under the control of Vincent Bolloré. France info makes a historic breakthrough.


The hearing measurements of the radio follow each other and resemble each other. For the better as for the worst, the satisfaction of the most listened to all, France inter, and the consternation of the one who does not stop emptying the room, Europe 1. According to the hearing figures issued by mediamétrie This Thursday, April 21 at 8 pm, 40.17 million French tense to the various programs each day of the first months of 2022. A stable figure over a year but still much lower than it was at the Same period of 2020 (42.2 million listeners), that is to say before the great shades of listening habits that accompanied the sanitary crisis.

By engaging 0.2 points compared to the period January-March 2021, the amiral antenna of Radio France (12.6% cumulative hearing) continues to dig the gap with its first competitor, RTL (10 , 6%, stable): With its 6.9 million daily auditors, Inter enters each day a million more than the Group M6 station. Between the function of Laurence Bloch, there will be eight years ago, and this spring, who will see her leave the station of the station for the benefit of Adèle Van Reeth, France Inter will have won 1.7 million listeners. “We have to look at reality, the French plebiscite us”, welcomes the leader, “proud” to bring “the most beautiful answers” to attacks against the public antenna uttered on the trays of CNEWS or in one of Figaro Magazine last winter.

No respite

At the other end of the spectrum of general antennas, the descent into the hell of Europe 1 still does not know a respite. Neither the war in Ukraine nor the campaign for the presidential election will have given the faithful of the station controlled by Vincent Bolloré of the reasons to remain attached. The station loses 1.1 point over one year, and now passes below the four points (3.9% AC). In Europe, we try to find some blue sky corners (the media show of Philippe Vandel in the morning, the afternony of Christophe Hondelatte), the situation has never been as catastrophic. This tumble, added to the slight weakness of RMC (5.7% of the hearing, -0.1 point) and the fall accused by France (5.6% cumulative hearing, -0.4 point), entails A loss of 266,000 listeners for all general radios.

Traditionally carrying for these antennas, the electoral context seems to have benefited only from inter, including all brackets of information card, and who earns 179,000 listeners. He has also been for all radio France, adds Siby 60 Veil. “Our antennas are listened to by 1.2 million listeners more than five years ago, or 15.8 million”, welcomes the President of the Public Radio. The density of national and international information undeniably borne france info, whose 1.1 point over one year increase is the strongest market over the period. A 9.9% cumulative hearing, the continuing info station carries out its “better audience for nineteen years, and its best performance over the period January-March” since its creation, is delighted by director Jean-Philippe Baille .
