Yes, they're still the most listened to broadcaster, although by a small
margin. Other big national broadcasters are NRJ Group, RTL Group,
Lagardère and Skyrock. Those groups together with Radio France amount to
19 stations with a total audience share of 76% The rest is fragmented
between local stations and small national stations. The regulations
impose a limit of 150m potential listeners for each group, which has had
the effect of limiting further consolidation.
