People love radio.
In 2013, record audiences listened to radio throughout the UK! Almost 47 million (90%) adults listen to radio every week for an average of 22 hours. This proves that that radio is still the nation’s second most-consumed medium after TV, accounting for over a quarter of the average adult’s time spent with media across the day.
With the opportunity to listen in beyond a traditional wireless, a range of ways to listen through digital platforms have expanded the opportunity to tune in to your favourite station.
90% of listeners do something else while listening to radio; listening on the move, whilst driving, whilst at home doing housework or at work. Radio, unlike TV and press, doesn’t require any commitment of time – it fits round listeners’ lives.
47.3 million adults (over 15) listen to radio – or 90% of the population. In total across the UK that’s 1.03 billion hours of listening.

The Bridge is a Community Radio Station. That mean’s we’re not-for-profit and are run ENTIRELY by VOLUNTEERS, who give up their time to bring YOU the very best. In fact we’re so good Ofcom have extended our licence until 2017!
When you advertise with us, the revenue we make goes back into investing in the station: from technical infrastructure through to providing latest online innovations.
Everyone involved in The Bridge CARES and, just because we’re volunteers, doesn’t mean to say we’re amateur.
LISTEN IN – we think we are better than our commercial competitors!!
Our volunteers also train new volunteers, support local initiatives and charities, promote non-profit community events and organisations, give access to local MPs and Councillors to engage with the community on a one-to-one basis, support local creative talent and promote just what is brilliant about the Black Country! Wow!
Here at The Bridge, we don’t have favourites. For us, it’s not all about filling our ad breaks with big name companies – we’re all about inclusivity. It doesn’t matter if you’re a national supermarket or a corner shop, there’s a package on offer to get your name out there at a price you can afford.
We want to help small businesses when times are hard. We have some great deals for you. It is part of our commitment to LOCAL communities.
The Bridge is YOU! It’s local people, who use your local business, who listen.
With us, every listener is PART of The ’Bridge – they are part of OUR family.
