Having worked on online radio stations for over a decade, I’ve come to understand the potential difficulties that can be experienced by managers, presenters and listeners. I have learnt that a station website is essential to stand any chance of achieving success. The Weekly Radio Schedule is a WordPress plugin developed to meet the needs of radio station teams.
With visions of listeners tuning in from all over the world, you will find it easy to start an online radio station. Only a modicum of ‘tech’ knowledge is required. You can set up encoders to connect to a radio server for each of your merry band of DJs / Presenters and be up and running in a flash. Starting is easy. Running a successful online radio station is a little more difficult.
OK. You have DJs / Presenters ‘LIVE On Air’ but what about listeners? At the very least, they need to know how to find your radio stream and what time their favourite show will be on. The DJs / Presenters themselves need to be clear about their show times. Connecting from different time zones, particularly when the clocks change twice a year, can easily lead to confusion and frustration when two DJs / Presenters have prepared to play the same slot.
The Weekly Radio Schedule plugin is designed to give stations the best chance of achieving success. For managers, it becomes easy to allocate and manage slots. DJs / Presenters can easily manage their own slots or take vacant slots at any time. The schedule is ‘always up-to-date’ so there is no confusion for listeners.
The Weekly Radio Schedule plugin provides the backbone to turn a website into your online radio station hub. Listeners log in and interact with each other as well as DJs / Presenters ‘On Air’ and social media sharing is made easy.
This project has much more to it than I can go into here. Whether you run an existing station or you want to start out on the right foot, check out the plugin website. It’s designed to integrate with other cool plugins so that you can create the ideal website for your station. Take a look at a fully integrated example here.
