Airtime

The time of day, the days of the week, the weeks of the month and months of the year all play part of the consideration when planning effective radio schedules. It’s as important as the commercial itself. One will not work well without the other. A great ad needs a great schedule too.

Our team of highly trained Account Managers, Planners and Traffic teams all work together using the latest industry software and technologies to ensure the creative design, effective planning and solid delivery of your airtime campaigns.

Creative

Music, Celebrity Voices, Sound Effects, Stories, Themes, Scenarios, and even silence all play a part in the vast amount of amazing things we do in radio commercials.

Our industry Award Winning Production Hub in Stoke-On-Trent supports our team of Award Winning writers, based at each station. This fully integrated team means you get the best ideas, written by a local writer and then brought to life through state-of-the-art production techniques.

Our flair and passion for creative, powerful, entertaining and memorable radio commercials will achieve massive stand-out for you in your local market.

Promotions

We have dedicated teams of Event experts at each station and we are brilliant at bringing radio to life for any event or promotion.

Huge feel-good events such as Local Culture and Lifestyle Awards, Local Hero Awards and various charity fundraising events mean that we know how to rock a party, and help give something back too. On air promotions are a great way to really engage our audience with something that is interactive, fun to listen to and can be great water-cooler conversation starters and social media chatter fuel.

Sponsorships

Our listeners have great relationships with our Local radio stations. They know us for Local presenters, Local Traffic and Travel, Local Weather, Local Sport and Local events. These all offer an opportunity to become engrained in the hearts and minds of the listeners on a hugely emotional level.
