The biggest radio stories of 2020

It’s been a year like no other so here are the three biggest radio stories of the year.📻

The pandemic changed how we do radio

Everything changed a little as some began hosting from home and every news bulletin focused on one story.

Radio had more listeners than ever while simultaneously going through the toughest financial struggle the industry ever faced.

It was certainly a crazy time so let’s just hope next year is a bit less crazy!

Spin 1038 and Spin South West come together.

Spin decide to bring shows together and network some shows.

It’s something that has happened many times in the UK but it’s one of the first big examples here in Ireland.

Do you think it provides stability or just shrinks our industry? Do you think there’s more networking on the way? Let us know on our Twitter

More digital stations than ever before hit the internet

This year seems to have been a huge year for online stations. Many stations launched services that live in there apps. While others launched whole new brands.

From stations like Music One and quarantine FM to stations like 96FM Fit Mix there’s now more to listen to than ever before.

It’s been a crazy year of good and bad news in 2020 so let’s just hope next year is slightly easier for everyone.
