Statement from Radiocentre about General Election results

It’s clearly a stunning victory for Labour and a stinging rebuke to the Tories. Elections in the UK have never been this volatile, so the pressure will be on the new government to move decisively and make a significant impact quickly.

The implications for media and advertising are not entirely clear at this stage, especially given the loss of Shadow Culture Secretary Thangam Debbonaire as an MP.

Whoever ends up in this important role I know they’ll receive constructive engagement from our sector in support of meaningful change and economic growth. And it goes without saying we will be reminding them of the growing commercial radio audiences and the role it played in the election
