TBS Radio continues to rule the airwaves in the Tokyo metropolitan area, where it has held the top audience rating for 17 consecutive years since August 2001.
The weekday morning variety program Hikaru Ijuin and Radio and... recorded the highest rating in its slot, while Jane Su – Life is a Dance, which also airs on weekday mornings, was No. 2 in the same slot. Since starting in April 2018, our evening program After 6 Junction has quickly developed a loyal following of listeners. JUNK, which airs from 1 a.m. on weekdays and is hosted in rotation by popular celebrities, held the largest audience in the wee hours every day. Whatever the time, we are the undisputed king of radio in the metropolitan area.
The radio industry has undergone dramatic changes over the past few years, and we have introduced various new services to attract new listeners. Our “radiko” Internet Protocol radio broadcasts allow users to listen to the past week’s programs at any time and post segments they enjoyed on social media to share them with friends and acquaintances. We also launched the free “TBS RADIO CLOUD” app, which lets users listen to our music content when and where they like.
