More people are listening to kmfm than ever before, latest official figures reveal.

Once again the kmfm audience has increased following the latest RAJAR results, which are released today.

Another 33,400 adults have tuned into the station over the last six months, taking the weekly audience to over 206,000 - the highest ever recorded in the station’s history.

The biggest gain has been to the Breakfast Show with Garry and Laura - which now has 26,900 new listeners.

The show, which is broadcast live on KMTV, reaches 116,000 listeners - an increase of 30% since the last quarter.

Another big winner was Drivetime with Rob Wills, adding 20,800 listeners, or another 30% increase.

Listeners are now choosing to tune in to kmfm on average 6.1 hours each week.

These results come at a time when the station increased the number of £1,000 Fridays competitions, broadcast Make Someone’s Christmas, A Shed Load of Toys plus a range of Christmas events across Kent.

Rob Wills, also kmfm Programme Manager, said "It's fantastic to see a record number of people listening to kmfm.

"It's a great reflection on both the team and the listeners, who play a big part in the station's success - whether that's through our on-air competitions, social channels, interacting with our fantastic shows or keeping us informed about the latest travel news."
