Hundreds of local and national commercial radio stations will be broadcasting the One Love Manchester benefit concert live on Sunday June 4. It is being held at the Old Trafford Cricket Ground, commencing at 7pm. The tribute will raise money through the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund for the victims and families affected by the terrorist attack at the Ariana Grande concert on May 22. Coverage is expected from around 6.30pm to 10.00pm.
Siobhan Kenny, Chief Executive of Radiocentre said: “In a great spirit of cooperation, I am delighted that so many commercial radio stations have come together to provide coverage of this important tribute concert. We wish the organisers well, pulling together an event of this scale at such short notice. It is bound to be unforgettable and a fitting tribute.”
Radiocentre is the industry body for commercial radio. We work on behalf of over 40 stakeholders who operate 278 licensed radio stations across the UK and represent 90% of commercial radio in terms of listening and revenue. Commercial radio reaches 63.9% of the population each week.
