Digital radio summer campaign - On air now

Date: 04-Jul-2017

Digital Radio UK have announced details of the new Summer on air industry-wide digital radio campaign which recently launched across BBC and commercial stations. The campaign for commercial stations includes a focus on in car conversion, encouraging listeners to upgrade their car to digital radio, and highlights the availability of a range of devices and tick mark installers.

The commercial radio in-car conversion ads look nostalgically at the miles listeners have travelled with their old car radio before highlighting the benefits they’ll receive by upgrading their car to digital radio. The ads communicate the simplicity of in car conversion by emphasising the range of digital radios and adaptors available; that any car can be converted; and that tick mark installers are on hand to help.  The call to action again encourages listeners to ‘look for the digital tick on approved products – it means the radio is future-ready’ and to find registered installers, points to the postcode checker for installers on
