COVID-19 update

More people are turning on to HHCR, Basingstoke community radio. Over the last few weeks, we’ve seen a increase in listeners turning to us for the very latest information regarding COVID-19 – and how our community has been pulling together.

Since we launched in June 2019 we’ve been a platform to help share everything that happen in our town, with responsibility and empathy – which is needed more now than ever.
Right now, we have a concentrated audience across the town and surrounding villages who are looking for open businesses just like yours. We can offer very reasonable advertising campaigns (from just £20 a week) and also free business profiles on-air as well.
Not everyone is on social media – and if they are, online platforms are getting so congested with posts that it’s harder than ever to get your message across. Radio allows you to cut through the noise.

We have put together a special #LetsSupportLocal package, designed to help businesses get in front of people in our town. This is a heavily-discounted campaign – after all, we want you to do well! We also guarantee that you will not find a better return-on-investment advertising in Basingstoke. Get in touch to find out more *Please send us an email *
