Fresh from the launch of the brand new Q Radio headquarters located in the heart of Belfast city centre, Q Radio is celebrating its highest listener figures to date, with 306,000 listeners tuning in across Northern Ireland.
Such impressive RAJAR results round off a month of incredible success for the station, picking up an IMRO Radio Award for Best News Bulletin, as well as a Gold Award in the Media Owner Initiative category at the recent PANI Awards.
As well as increasing the overall figures, people are also spending longer than ever before tuned into Q Radio, with the total listening hours now going beyond two million.

“The Q Radio team is delighted with these recent set of figures. We have added 56,000 listeners since the same period last year, which is testament to our dedication as a station to broadcasting quality local content for local people.
