Commercial Airtime
Our sales team will work with you to deliver the most effective advertising campaign to tackle the specific requirements of your business.  With our planning systems and knowledge of the radio market, we can ensure that your message reaches the right people at the right time.

Sponsorship and Promotions
Another way to interact powerfully with our listeners is through our innovative sponsorship and promotions packages.  As radio is the most trusted medium, these opportunities allow you to get even closer to our listeners.  Bespoke shorter-term promotions can quickly build excitement and participation, while sponsorships allow you to build brand awareness over a period of time, via on-air activity, off-air events or online.

Global Ideas
Global Ideas is the creative agency from Global Radio.  Working with the most talented writers and producers in the country, we will make sure your campaign sounds great and works. Thanks to our extensive knowledge of how radio works, many international corporations and agencies choose to work with us. However, irrespective of your budget, our creative team will take a brief, write the campaign and present it back - all with no obligation to buy. Costs only apply if you choose to have the commercials recorded.  For more information on Ideas and contact details, please click here.

At Global Radio, we pride ourselves on our innovation, creativity and industry development. We constantly strive to provide our clients with new and varied ways of reaching our listeners from SMS texting to interactive on-line activity and more.
