While Matt & Alex enjoyed a slight share increase of 0.5 from the last survey, triple j's weekday share got a nice boost of 1.5, thanks to healthy increases across the board.

KIIS 1065 heavyweights Kyle & Jackie O finished the year on top in the FM breakfast battle with a share of 10.5, while all eyes will be on 2DayFM, as Rove & Sam fell by 0.4 points to round out the year on a disappointing share of 3.8.

It is rumoured that tough decisions will have to be made for 2017, amid speculation that Rove is returning to late night TV.

Triple j took its biggest beating on the final 2016 survey in Perth, with nasty drops in all categories. 

Matt & Alex took their biggest hit, albeit not the most disastrous, with a drop of 0.5 points to clinch a share of 8.7, while the network's worst outing came in the evening slot, down 2.1 points.
