Benefits of Radio

Over 60,000 Listeners a Week and Growing!

Ocean FM is the only local station covering Sligo, South Donegal and North Leitrim and we are the only station broadcasting to all age groups. There are 82,000 adults (over 15 years) in our franchise area. 68% of them tune in to Ocean FM every week. That’s nearly 60,000 listeners every week – combined all local press titles in the area only give you half of this.

Ocean FM is one of the top three most listened to local/regional stations in Ireland and we have more than double the listenership of any other station broadcasting into our area at peak times.

In 2017 Ocean FM increased its listenership by a further 3% while newspaper sales in the same region declined yet again by more than 12% combined over the same period. And because we broadcast over an area covering most of the West/Northwest with a potential audience of 250,000 plus, we are one of the most powerful routes to your customers.

So if you want to reach an audience that peaks in the vital 25-55 age group and you want advertising that works, contact our sales team for the best value advertising in the region.
