HISTORIC RECORD RATINGS STREAK
Ray Hadley, has today (July 11) celebrated an historic 150th consecutive ratings win – one of the longest winning streaks of all time. Today’s ratings from Gfk Survey 4 saw The Ray Hadley Morning Show record a 17 share, up 1.5 points – solidifying Hadley’s dominance as Sydney’s No.1 live and local broadcaster for more than 19 years. His unbeaten streak started in Survey 4, 2004.
On this significant milestone, Ray Hadley said: “In the greater scheme of things it’s not the most important story I’ll deal with today but it’s gratifying and means I’ve been number one since mid-2004. Let’s hope for 151!”
Managing Director of Nine Radio, Tom Malone, said: “Ray Hadley is a once in a lifetime broadcaster who is unmatched in versatility and work ethic. Ray’s loyalty to his listeners and their welfare is the cornerstone of his success. He deserves every success.”
Hadley remains the most decorated radio host in Australian Commercial Radio Award (ACRA) history, with 33 awards and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2017.
After 19 successful years broadcasting at 2UE, Hadley joined 2GB in late 2001 and on 4th March 2002, The Ray Hadley Morning Show first went to air. Hadley is also the founding member of The Continuous Call Team (CCT) which re-shaped sports radio shows, and remains unbeaten since 1992.
He still calls rugby league for 2GB and his tally includes thousands of NRL games, 33 Grand Finals and tomorrow night he will call his 96th State of Origin.
