Radio needs to invest in strong and compelling digital services. If it does, radio can look forward to a robust future built on the strong foundation it already has in the marketplace leveraging the medium’s great reach, habitual listenership, local presence and brands.Did we earlier mention features such as podcast and multichannel publishing, today we want to show you the possibilities of Visual Radio. Because why just have listeners, when you can have a fully engaged audience?

Visual radio can bring a wealth of exciting new opportunities to every broadcaster. With visuals you can complement everything from music, advertisement, jingles and news to live feeds from your studio or live event. Adding music videos, stills, graphics and camera feeds to your content will most likely result in deeper audience engagement and, even more important, increased loyalty. Simply because you offer more than just audio, which is becoming more and more important nowadays with modern day society’s image obsession. Although the strength of radio always has been its ability to boost the imagination via the content being broadcast, adopting other ways of communicating will for sure attract new and more listeners.
