The breakfast radio show of Alan Jones and 2GB both got a dip in the aftermath of the Jacinda Ardern scandal.

The shock jock came under fire on 15 August when he urged Scott Morrison to push the throat of New Zealand's prime minister in the air & # 39; in response to its statements on climate change.

The reviews of the 2GB radio station plunged into all time slots and lost 0.6 percent of the total share in the latest Commercial Radio Australia survey released Tuesday.

The ratings for the Jones show fell by 0.3 percent, but still exceeded breakfast rations at 17.1 percent, clearly free of its close competition ABC 702 (11.5 percent).

After a widespread response, Jones publicly apologized for his comments, while his employer Macquarie gave Radio Jones a strict warning that he would be fired if similar comments were made again.

More than 60 advertisers, including Anytime Fitness, Koala mattresses, Virgin Australia, Mercedes Benz Sydney and the Commonwealth Bank, have since ended their station spending in the aftermath of the saga.

Jones was also out of the air for a week with the flu in the middle of the fifth 2019 survey period between July 14 and August 17.

The precipitation can continue in the next review period, as Jones & # 39; comments about Ardern were made only two days before the end of the most recent review period.

Despite the recent hit, 2 GB remains at the top of the ratings to maintain a leading market share of 13.4 percent to claim its 122nd consecutive research victory.

Elsewhere in breakfast reviews, KIIS FM's Kyle and Jackie O Show grew to 11 percent (an increase of 0.1), followed by WSFM's Jonesy and Amanda by 8.2 percent (a decrease of 0.3 ) and Nova & # 39; s Fitzy and Wippa remained stable at 7.5 percent.
