Nation Player


Nation Broadcasting is proud to be one of the UK’s fastest-growing media companies.

We own a portfolio of national, regional and local commercial radio stations, a digital marketing business and operate and invest in DAB transmission and software companies.

The company started in 2002 with the launch of Radio Pembrokeshire in West Wales. A successful strategy of growth through station acquisitions, new service launches and investment in related sectors has seen us develop considerably.

Record audience for Nation Radio in Wales, Scotland and London

The latest audience figures from RAJAR (period to December 2022) show a massive boost to Nation stations across the UK.

In Wales, Nation Radio has posted a 15% increase in reach to 173,000 weekly listeners and more than doubled listening hours to a record 1.3 million weekly hours.

In Scotland and London, Nation Radio has record reach with over 100,000 weekly reach on each station and record listening hours.

During 2022 we welcomed new areas into the Nation Radio family with services on air in Suffolk, East Yorkshire and the South Coast so we look forward to adding even more listeners in the future.

We’re also pleased to see Nation’s Easy Radio Wales more than treble its audience hours as we extend our coverage into Cardiff.

When taken together, Nation's family of radio stations deliver well over 5 million hours of listening every week and attract a weekly audience of almost 800,000.

Alongside these official figures, we’re also celebrating record engagement levels with the Nation Player app and growth in streaming hours (January 2023.vs December 2022).
