  Radio One is losing loads of listeners
Updated 08 May 2003, 18.31
Radio One has been losing listeners
Radio One is struggling to keep hold of its listeners, according to figures out today for the last three months.

Of all the people listening to radio stations during those three months, less than 8% were tuning into Radio One - the first time they've gone below that figure.

There was some good news for the station though, with Wes Butters doing really well in his first stint in charge of the Official Top 40 chart on Sundays.

Around 113,000 new listeners tuned into Wes during the three months, taking the total number of listeners to the chart to 2.7m.

The figures, called the Rajars, also showed that more and more people are getting into digital radio.

Dance station Kiss 100 had almost 1m listeners, while rock station Kerrang and Smash Hits both had more than 700,000 each.

It's a big day for the radio industry, with the Sony Awards for the best presenters and stations and DJs happening later on Thursday.
