Our Listeners

Our audience is mainly 25-54 and within the affluent region of Dublin city, county and commuter belt. Three quarters of our listeners are main shoppers or decision-makers in the household, while nearly two thirds are in (full or part-time), a higher percentage that other Dublin-based radio stations. Our listeners are likely to have children, a mortgage and are trying to juggle home and work commitments. They’re also likely to own a car, look for good value on the weekly shop and are in the market for home improvements, furniture, electrical goods and other life necessities. Our listeners are the people that advertisers like to reach.

A Day in the Life of Radio Nova

The Nova day kicks off at 6am with ‘The Colm & Lucy Breakfast Show’; it’s packed with news, traffic, information and the quirkier side of life as viewed by broadcasters Colm Hayes and Lucy Kennedy. Then, ‘Marty Miller @ Work’ continues from 10am; it’s perfect for the first few hours of work. Play Connect 4, check our ‘This Day in Music History’ or just sit back and enjoy three hours of great Nova tunes. Dee Woods takes you through lunchtime at 1pm with ‘Dee Woods Lunchbreak’, with an hour of cracking 80s tunes until 2pm and then an hour of Nova music with Dee’s special guests. From 3pm, the inimitable Pat Courtenay takes over and gets you ready for your drive home. Pat will take care of you on your journey through rush hour traffic with the now world famous ‘Pat Nav’. Finally, Greg Gaughren brings you an evening of the best Nova tunes around, complete with on-the-spot results from the footie as it happens.

Add to that plenty of banter, snappy news headlines, great competitions and a light-hearted take on life throughout the day, and that’s Radio Nova!
