DJ is making a radio announcement that the boys in black failed to kill John Wick:

DJ: A little traffic update. I'm hearing the boys in black couldn't get it done. Our wicked friend is on the move again. He's headed your way, my listeners of the 8th.

What does "listeners of the 8th" mean ?

I'm assuming that this refers to the 8th Arrondissement of Paris.

The 8th arrondissement of Paris (VIIIe arrondissement) is one of the 20 arrondissements of the capital city of France. In spoken French, the arrondissement is colloquially referred to as le huitième (lit. 'the eighth').

The arrondissement, called Élysée, is situated on the right bank of the River Seine and centered on the Avenue des Champs-Élysées. The 8th arrondissement is, together with the 1st, 9th, 16th and 17th arrondissements, one of Paris' main business districts. According to the 1999 census, it was the place of employment of more people than any other single arrondissement of the capital. It is also the location of many places of interest, among them the Champs-Élysées, the Arc de Triomphe (partial) and the Place de la Concorde, as well as the Élysée Palace, the official residence and office of the President of France.
