Share Radio reports 300% increase in listeners

National DAB station Share Radio has reported a threefold increase in the number of digital downloads generated by the station from April 2015 to April 2016.

The financial station dedicated to providing information on money and investment matters for people across the UK, saw website, app and Audioboom figures go up, rising from 20,000 monthly average downloads to over 50,000 in January 2016 and 65,000 in April 2016. A further 15,000 downloads were made from the the This is Money Audioboom channel. Share radio also saw on-demand audience figures doubling since the beginning of the year.

Lee Roberts, Commercial Director at Share Radio commented: “Share Radio is a unique station in commercial radio. We are a combination of BBC Radio Four and The FT – no phone-ins and no DJs, just quality speech editorial about money and business. Like BBC speech stations, a large proportion of our audience listens on demand. The popularity of speech radio has increased over the past few years, and the biggest stars of speech radio have been in the commercial sector. More and more services are launching and TalkSport 2, TalkRadio and Share Radio now can be found nationwide on the DAB dial.

“These figures are very encouraging and show how our business is developing as both a publisher and broadcaster of high quality speech programming. We look forward to increasing our business further in the second half of this year.”

Share Radio broadcasts 24/7 with a team of 30 journalists live on air from 6am to 9pm each day, reacting to the news as it happens.
