This Weeks Question:
Thames Radio is converting itself to a non-stop music station and will no longer have presenters. Do presenters play a big part for you when choosing a radio station?
Yes - presenters are key - 60%
No - I listen for the music - 35%
I am indifferent - 5%
Just give me the prize! - 0%
"Presenters personality's are everything! I am also looking for their music selection, anything else is just a Spotify playlist (which I would go to Spotify for)."
"I will turn up or even turn over a radio station based on the presenter!"
"I'd prefer music all day over presenters talking all the time!"
"Absolutely. I actually think presenters are getting left behind a bit in a lot of radio - commercial especially, where the focus is just on stacking the ads sky-high and banging out whatever's in the charts. I would like to see presenters getting more talk-time. Music is obviously important, but the presenters are the soul of the station."
"Presenters are key to making radio come alive and connecting with the listener in an intimate and personal way. If they aren't there you might as well stick on CD or playlist. So will they be getting rid of commercials as well? "
