Bauer Media is offering sponsorship of both Frank Skinner and Al Murray as a joint package, to potential clients.
Frank Skinner hosts weekends on Absolute Radio whilst Al Murray is heard on Planet Rock – both stations bought by Bauer Media in the last two years.
To highlight the benefits, Bauer will be holding a Q&A evening with the two comedians, hosted by Absolute Radio presenter Geoff Lloyd on November 11th. The event is open to all agencies and brands to listen to stories from the road, find out how they use radio to better connect with fans and new audiences, and to learn some secrets of the comedy trade.
Clare Chamberlain, Head of Creative and Brand Solutions, Bauer Media, said: “This joint opportunity between Absolute Radio and Planet Rock offers a unique way of reaching two engaged audiences that hold similar values – a passion for good music and comedy. It’s a great chance to use Bauer’s roster of talent, in this case two of the UK’s most popular comedians, to engage consumers across the nation.”
Frank Skinner hosts his weekly show at 8am every Saturday morning when he’s joined by co-presenters Alun Cochrane and Emily Dean for a show combining chat and real music. Since Frank has been on air since March 2009 and currently receives more than 50,000 downloads for his podcast every week.
Al Murray presents a Sunday morning show on Planet Rock from 10-12pm called ‘Defender of the Planet Rock Tradition’. Regular features in the show include the celebration of classic guitar rifts – “King of the Six String”, readings from rock star autobiographies and Al celebrates rock classics with “The Universal Riff of Power”. Al is a member of band T-34 as a drummer and has performed with Phil Collins, Queen, Roger Daltrey and Tom Jones. He joined Planet Rock in 2013.
The event on November 11 will be held at London’s Charlotte Street Hotel from 6pm. For more information contact Phoebe James via [email protected]
