'Now Playing' information now available on Community Radio Plus

Amy Leiper, 19th July 2022
If you have a radio automation system, you can now add your ‘Now Playing’ information to the Community Radio Plus app. This makes it easier for listeners to know what is playing now and what has been played over the last hour so.

Andrew Morris, CBAA’s Online Products & Services Manager, said, “We want to make Community Radio Plus as user friendly and engaging and the mobile listening experience as rich as possible. All of these details add to that. Being able to contact the station, links to socials as well as what’s playing now and a future program guide, will provide a better experience for your listeners.”

To start the process of connecting your ‘Now Playing info to the Community Radio Plus App, email [email protected]
