Promoting strong, successful and brilliant commercial radio.

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. We perform three main functions on behalf of our members.

Advertising: Drive industry revenue by promoting the benefits of radio to advertisers and agencies, asking them to see radio differently through a combination of marketing activity (events, advertising, PR), research, and training

Policy: Provide UK commercial radio with a collective voice on issues that affect the way that radio stations operate, working with government, politicians, policy makers and regulators to secure the best environment for growth and development of the medium

Clearance: Ensure advertising messages on commercial radio stations comply with the necessary content rules and standards laid out in the BCAP Code of Broadcast Advertising and the Ofcom Broadcasting Code.
