Fewer Hungarians tune in to radio every day

The percentage of Hungarians over the age of 14 who listen to the radio every day fell to 37% in 2018, from 42% in 2017, shows a survey by the National Media and Infocommunications Authority (NMHH).


The percentage of regular radio listeners who tune in to their favorite stations for three or more hours a day increased from 31% to 38% during the period.

Seven in ten Hungarians listened to the radio occasionally last year, down from three-quarters in 2017. The survey suggests there are about six million radio listeners over the age of 14 in Hungary, the NMHH said.

Almost half of listeners tune in to music stations, while just one in ten likes talk radio.
