RadioTimes.com had record-breaking audience numbers in December 2018, with 15.3 million unique users visiting the site.
December’s visitor numbers for RadioTimes.com were up 30.5 per cent year-on-year, with page views totalling 54.5 million, up 16 per cent on the year. Part of the increase has been driven by the increased on-demand television editorial content on the site, helping viewers discover the best digital content across a multitude of providers, which is up 240% on the corresponding period last year.
Tim Glanfield, RadioTimes.com editor, says: “TV and the way we consume content is changing fast, with more programmes and films than ever before available instantly at our fingertips. In an increasingly busy digital ecosystem, there’s never been more need for trusted, high quality content and guidance. And thanks to the creativity, hard work and an intimate understanding of what TV viewers want, it’s fair to say that RadioTimes.com truly won Christmas! And with the website recording its biggest ever day on New Year’s Day (1.15 million people in 24 hours) 2019 has already got off to a flying start!”

And spending those years in digital really helped me have perspective on consumers and consumer behaviour.” - Kate Lewis, chief content officer, Hearst Magazines14th Feb 2019 Features
