Community radio listeners are increasingly listening to your radio station in ways other than your FM frequency and DAB+. And with the popularity of on-demand and podcasts, are YOU telling your listeners on-air how to listen to your station?

More and more listeners are going online to access their audio. As community broadcasters, we need to take advantage of these emerging and newly-established platforms to ensure that our traditional service of live and local content is available everywhere.


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.
