Many community broadcasters have faced challenges building websites from scratch, trying to keep up with technological updates, increasing service fees and ever-growing audience demands.

Our Radio Website Service solution for community radio stations aims to:

  • Help all stations have the best quality online presence

Radio Website Services Features

Live Streaming & On Demand Player  

Our Global Player allows listeners to keep listening to audio, even as they browse different pages on the site. Any audio (live or on demand) will play in the player, and it will keep playing even when they go to the next page. 

Program Guide 

Show users who’s on-air now, and what’s coming up. The Global Player updates these details in realtime, and stations can present their full guide using one of three beautiful layouts. 

Multi-Station Support 

Create as many live stations as you want, and the Global Player will make them all available to your listeners at the click of a button, complete with independent program guides and now-playing song data. 

Live Song Data 

Using the power of MetaRadio, display the current song information on your website. We integrate with 20+ different automation systems, and if you don’t have an automation system we can pull data from ACRCloud (it’s like Shazam, but for your web stream). 

Song History 

Listeners love knowing what played. Show up to 30 days of song history, complete with album art, in a searchable song history page. 


Your not-for-profit can accept donations using our best-practice donation forms. Create multiple landing pages to personalise the experience for specific campaigns and donor segments. Forward the donation details onto your CRM via Zapier. 

On Demand & Catch Up 

Connect to your Omny Studio account, and get automatic recordings of your live on-air shows available on your website, ready to listen anytime. 


Connect to your third-party podcast provider. Or create basic podcast feeds from within WordPress. 

Secure Payments & Forms 

Using Gravity Forms and Stripe, you can accept payments for any purpose you like! Including basic ticket purchasing, merchandise, and station membership. 

Email Signups 

Accept email signups, and send the data direct to Mailerlite, MailChimp, or Campaign Monitor. 

CRM Integration 

Send any form submission to your CRM, using Zapier and Webhook integration. 

Blog & News 

Write articles and publish them with ease! Use WordPress’ powerful editor to create your content, and share it everywhere! 

Block Editor 

We use the powerful WordPress Block Editor (Gutenberg) to create every page. We have created 20 bespoke blocks (and counting), specifically addressing the needs of radio stations. You also get access to all the standard WordPress blocks. 

Banner Ads 

Increase your revenue streams by placing banner ads across the site. We support multiple IAB standard ad sizes, and ensure they are placed responsively across your website. If you need advanced placement and reporting, connect Google Ad Manager. 

Google Analytics 

Keep track of your listeners and their browsing habits by connecting your site to Google Analytics. 

Hosting & Updates 

Every site we launch is hosted and supported by us. We run your site on scalable AWS hosting, keep it backed up, test and run all the updates, and deal with any issues that may arise. You don’t need to worry about a thing! 

Community Directories 

Provide a connection point with your community by using our local directories. We have directories for Local Events, Local Businesses, and Job Ads. Provide listings for free, or charge any amount you like – it’s up to you! 


Push data to Zapier, IFTTT, and other systems with our simple webhooks. Use this functionality to automatically post new content to social media, or send your form submissions to your CRM. 

Keep Up To Date 

In addition to keeping WordPress up to date, we also are constantly developing new functionality. When you subscribe to our platform, you get access to the latest features without ever paying by the hour for a developer. 

Pick Your Design 

We have a gallery of design options. You can mix and match component themes to suit your individual tastes. 

Email Support 

Have a question? Need help? Reach out to our email support team. We also have an ever-growing online resource library.
