Tuning in, to tune out

tuning in

By now, life from home has just begun to settle in and how we get through the day is heavily dependent on our ability to juggle. Balancing work, chores, restless kids, pets and if you’re lucky, downtime has become a recurring feature every day. And while the former leaves a lot to be desired, whether you realise it or not, we’ve managed to go about our new routines almost instinctively. Much like our ability to climatise in these situations, radio has found a way to adapt in light of the growing strains on our nation. Presenters host from home and content changes, yet radio’s ability to reach listeners in a crisis remains unscathed. Bottom line is, radio will always have your back. And with Easter fast approaching, many will be tuning in to their pal radio to get them through the holiday period.


Radio’s that friend where there’s never an awkward silence

Tuning in to radio means a lot of things. One of the many ways it comes in handy is on the days that move a bit slower than usual. Radio is a constant voice in the home and offers a positive safe space for those looking to escape the silence.


Radio’s that friend who’s always in the know

Radio is the nation’s most trusted companion. It has always been a staple in keeping us informed and in the know, which is more vital today than ever. As dependence on news increases, speech stations are reporting significant spikes in listening. LBC’s reach is up 43% and talkRADIO has seen a 20% increase in listening hours and 16% reach week-on-week. With trust in media still a major topic, it’s pleasing to know we can count on radio to keep us up to date.
