The first independent audience figures for Premier Christian Radio reveal that 1.3 million people listen every week across all platforms – on air and online. Audiomonitor figures – announced at the Next Radio conference at the Royal Institution in London confirm that 2.1 per cent of the UK population listens every week.
Bauer Media’s North West stations are looking for a new presenter for their Friday night radio show.
But instead of placing a free vacancy ad on RadioTodayJobs.com, they are asking listeners to send in video demos.
Comedian Jon Richardson has teamed up with Matt Forde as new hosts of talkSPORT’s Saturday show The Warm Up, which started last weekend. The pair will present the build-up show to talkSPORT’s Premier League coverage every Saturday, aiming to give a fan perspective of the weekend’s football action as well as a comedic take on the big sports stories of the week.
