Who are OUTREACH RADIO?
Outreach Radio is a regional radio station broadcasting across Hampshire & neighbouring Wiltshire, West Sussex, Surrey & the Isle of Wight, reaching a population coverage of approximately 1.5 million people.
As an independent locally operated radio station, our overheads are lower than our commercial radio counterparts, so we’re able to offer very competitive advertising rates to local businesses who wish to get their brand and offerings promoted across the region. Radio works like word of mouth – especially when heard on a truly local radio station.
Outreach Radio is also available on Freeview channel 277, (which supports image advertising), and we stream online via this website and through apps such as Radioplayer, Online Radio Box and myTuner and via Smart Speakers such as Amazon Echo devices.
How does radio advertising work?
It’s all about repetition; building response rates over time. The key to success in radio advertising is to advertise as often as possible.
Industry research shows that listeners are far more likely to consider and act on a message heard on their local radio station, leading to more store/online visits and more sales.
Radio compliments other forms of advertising and gives you an opportunity to talk directly to potential customers. Hearing your latest offer or deal on radio builds trust and authority with your new potential customer base.
Radio advertising is totally bespoke around your business, no package is the same. Our experienced sales team will work with you to create a campaign with impact that will give you maximum exposure on air.

* As a locally operated radio station with very limited funds, Outreach Radio is not yet registered with RAJAR, the official, (but unfortunately quite costly), industry body for radio audience measurement. In order to ascertain an approximate listener figure, Outreach Radio conducts a detailed analysis of it’s online listenership, (counting UK IP addresses only, so as not to skew the figures based on foreign connections), from it’s open-source technology audio streaming servers – similar to that of online website logs and analytics. These figures provide us with a clear insight into both unique visitors and returning listeners across all online devices; PC’s laptops, mobile devices, and smart speakers. RAJAR’s data release for Q1 2020 states that 14% of listening occurs online, whilst 40.2% occurs on DAB; a ratio of 1:2.9. Using this ratio, we are able to extrapolate to determine an approximate total listener count. We appreciate that this is a completely different approach to that used by RAJAR, but believe this has it’s merits, and is based on figures from our actual online listeners multiplied against a published ratio for online to DAB.
