A new radio station promoting the world of radio is to launch online from the owners of radio industry news organisation RadioToday.
inRadio will be “Radio about radio” and include the latest radio and entertainment news, topical discussions by radio people and features of interest to anyone who works in, or has an interest in radio.
RadioTodayLive will use the channel to broadcast from a number of events throughout the year, including the Arqiva Commercial Radio Awards and regional Radio Academy events.
Broadcast Radio, the new company name for P Squared, is overall station sponsor and is currently building a studio for the station ahead of its launch on 16th February 2016.
Roy Martin, Founder and Managing Editor: “It’s always puzzled me why the radio industry doesn’t have a radio station of its own. Even dogs have their own radio station!
“We’re also looking to the radio industry to provide content to promote your station or the industry in general. Daily breakfast show trails, station sound montages or even award entries which highlight the best of your station are all welcome.
“inRadio will be full of parody songs, spoof commercials and highlight the best of radio around the world.”
inRadio will highlight and broadcast a number of radio specific podcasts, such as The RadioToday Programme with Trevor Dann, the Earshot Creative Review with Steve Martin, The Media Podcast with Olly Man, David Lloyd’s Radio Moments, Larry Gifford’s Radio Stuff, the Producer’s Podcast with Ryan Drean, plus content from the Student Radio Association, Sound Women and more.
inRadio will also broadcast hourly news updates, and some exclusive programmes, plus special segments of archive audio such as bloopers, air checks and comedy radio sketches. Commercial breaks will be filled by adverts of interest to the radio industry.
