Six reasons to promote your event on radio

Targeted advertising

Target listeners who are already interested in the type of music or activity at your upcoming event.

Get started quickly

Short lead time and flexible scheduling means you can start promoting your event in just a few days.

Local listeners

Reach local listeners who are likely to travel to your event with a targeted alternative to regional and online media.

Low avoidance

Radio commercials are broadcast regularly, and listeners tend to spend a long time listening each week.

Call to action

Encourage listeners to buy tickets or register for an event online while they are listening to the radio with a strong call to action.

Radio is popular

Every week 87% of the population listen to the radio and on average a listener tunes in for 20 live hours a week. RAJAR/Ipsos MORI/RSMB Q4 2019
