Musical radio audiences: What scores for the last mornings of Manu Payet and Elodie Gossuin?

The flagship appointments of music stations are doing well. And this in a context of a wave of Médiamétrie audience marked by a decline in this category of stations with 161,000 loyal followers lost in one year, for a total of 17.4 million. In the morning, between last April and June, Manu Lévy had almost twice as many audiences as its main competitor radio station, Nostalgie. “Manu dans le 6/10” is listened to by 624,000 listeners, up 10,000 pairs of ears over one year. But on Nostalgie, Philippe and Sandy have not said their last word. The duo conquered 39,000 additional souls compared to April-June 2022, the largest increase in this top 10.

The duel is then tight between Bruno Guillon and Difool. The Fun Radio host narrowly wins with a community of 293,000 faithfulversus 292,000 urban music fans. But between the two men, it is David Massard, alias Difool, who is progressing the most (+23,000 listeners).

On Virgin Radio, between 6 a.m. and 10 a.m., mayonnaise still does not take for Manu Payet’s “Virgin Tonic” team with the evaporation of 31,000 listeners in one year, for a total of 210,000 irreducible. The music station, which should soon be renamed Europe 2, will welcome a new team in the morning from the start of the school year with the arrival of Guillaume Genton who will take over the destinies of “Morning without filter”. On Laughs & Songs, Bruno Roblès’ program has won 19,000 humor fans in one year and brought together 85,000 French each morning.
