The All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Commercial Radio is a group of cross-party parliamentarians with an interest in the radio industry.

It was founded to provide a better understanding between broadcasters and parliamentarians about the vital role that radio plays in our communities and our economy.

Andy Carter MP (Conservative, Warrington South) is the current Chair of the Group, having been elected in February 2020. Find out more here.

The APPG has produced a number of reports on the value of commercial Radio. Valuing Radio was published in December 2018. 

The Future of Radio was published in October 2020.
