Share Radio has just downloaded its one millionth programme. The station which launched nationally in the Spring already has over a quarter of a million regular listeners and has seen a powerful growth in on-demand listening. Share Radio is the only commercial radio station based on high quality speech editorial targeting ABC1 adults 35+.
Share Radio is a national DAB station dedicated to business, politics, finance and related lifestyle, and has won a number of awards in the last 12 months for its outstanding coverage of finance and economics.
Editor-in-Chief Donald Leggatt is delighted to acknowledge the role digital has played: “Over the months it became clear that our ability to deliver interesting spoken word content which our audience can stream is becoming an increasingly important part of our reach. It has allowed our listeners to discover for themselves our wealth of intelligent yet fun programmes – and to spread the word via social media. It helps that along the way the channel has already picked up a couple of awards, as have our terrific journalists, presenters like Sarah Pennells and Georgie Frost.”
Commercial Director Lee Roberts is thrilled to acknowledge the role digital has played: “Share Radio is now in an exciting growth phase and is inviting clients to try out our unique advertising and sponsorship opportunities we offer here.”
