Who we are

Radio Today publishes the inside word on all things radio for almost 15,000 readers every week and is continuously updated by a passionate team of journalists and contributors.

Reporting on the inner workings of a highly competitive industry, Radio Today is the only 100% free, in-depth site for breaking news, survey analysis, feature stories, airplay charts and opinion pieces.

From big talent hires and on-air gaffes to highly publicised departures and airplay data. Radio Today deconstructs the news, the ratings, the talent moves, the executive reshuffles and programming pivots.
