Advertise on Maritime Radio 96.5FM

Maritime Radio works with businesses of all sizes across Greenwich and south east London.  In fact, radio advertising is a lot cheaper and easier than you might think!

As we reach around 24,000 listeners every week across south London and north-west Kent, have you thought about adding radio advertising to your marketing mix?

We would like to offer local businesses the opportunity to advertise with us or sponsor one of our programmes. We believe it is really beneficial to the image of a business to be associated with a locally produced service such as ours, especially as we love Greenwich as much as our local traders do!

Your 30-second commercial will be on air up to 12 times per day, meaning everyone will hear it!  You may also wish to sponsor one of our features such as the events guide or weather bulletin.

Please email duncan@maritimeradio.co.uk or call us on 020 3034 0520 for our rates and to get started.
