Global Media & Entertainment
Global is one of the world’s leading media & entertainment groups. We’ve built some of the UK’s biggest radio stations and media brands including Heart, Capital, Smooth, Classic FM, LBC, Capital XTRA, Radio X and Gold – more than half the UK population tune into one of our radio stations every single week! Wherever and whenever people want to consume music and entertainment, Global is there at scale. On-air, on multiple platforms, across media, mobile, social, we reach 31 million people every week.
As our audiences consume music and entertainment on the move, audio is quickly becoming the format of choice for more and more people. Whether it’s the tunes that power you through your morning run, the podcasts that help you conquer the commute, or the songs that help you unwind, the number of people streaming audio is growing fast. That’s why we created DAX, the market leader in digital audio advertising.
But that’s just for starters. Global also runs hundreds of the UK’s biggest and best music events every year, including Capital’s Summertime Ball and Jingle Bell Ball. We’re one of the biggest festival companies in the UK and new for 2018 are the Global Awards which celebrate the biggest stars of music, news and entertainment.
Almost a third of all adults across the South Coast tune in to one of our radio stations each week. Whether they turn up the feel good with Heart, connect with Capital, Solent’s number 1 hit music station, or enjoy Smooth’s relaxing music mix, we keep 585,000 people across the area informed and entertained every week.
We’re also proud to support a number of local charities through our Global Charity, Make Some Noise, which supports small but brilliant projects including The Children’s Liver Disease Foundation, The Children’s Bereavement Centre and Genie Networks here on the South Coast.
