Welcome to Radio Travel News

All-day travel news for your radio station, sent automagically to your playout system every hour, and every 30 minutes at peak times.

We record a 45-second bulletin each hour on weekdays, plus an extra half-hourly bulletin at breakfast and drive, then send it to Dropbox or FTP before the top/bottom of the hour. Play it before your news, after your news, or as a stand-alone item.

Your bulletin is unbranded and is designed to be a sponsored feature, the income from your clients more than covering the cost. It offers a snapshot of what’s happening on the roads and public transport to keep your listeners informed.

We update half-hourly from 7am till 9am and 4.30pm till 7pm inclusive, plus hourly from 10am till 4pm. Our team is experienced in travel news and will blend in perfectly with your output.

The 45-second bulletin contains:

Motorway closures
Trunk road incidents
Public transport emergencies
National traffic incidents

Radio Travel News is perfect for automated radio stations broadcasting online, or using a number of DAB multiplexes.

Real-time travel information is viewed as a valuable service by listeners, helping them plan their journeys in advance, or informing them of potential problems on the road ahead. And even if your listeners aren’t travelling, it’s good to give them a sense of what’s happening in real time around the country – a bonus if you run an automated service.

NATIONAL TRAVEL BULLETIN

Online radio stations are usually automated or semi-live. If you have an hourly news bulletin from Sky or Radio News Hub, why not compliment it with travel news as well?

Radio Travel News works with all major playout systems – from RCS and Myriad to PlayoutONE and more.

All you need is a free Dropbox account and a facility to auto-insert audio content into your log. Most playout systems already include this facility and are used hourly by radio stations around the world.

Why Radio Travel News?

Providing travel news on a local or regional scale is very time-consuming. Offering a national bulletin is almost a full-time job.

So if your radio station covers more than one area, either online or via AM/FM/DAB, let your listeners know what’s going on for their commute, road trips, or long-distance train journeys.

We also offer custom bulletins for your town, city or county. Please contact us for more details via the form below or email hello@radiotravelnews.com.

You can order and pay for your monthly subscription on this website, then all you need to do is fill out a short form with details of your radio service and Dropbox account. In most cases, we’ll get you set up the same day with a shared folder for you to access the audio bulletin.

The bulletins are ‘white label’ and do not mention Radio Travel News. Our presenters end the bulletin with ‘that’s the latest… I’m [name]’. You can visit our client page at RadioTravelNews.com/today to find out who’s on reading duty for you to forward promote.

Breaking News

We also provide out-of-hours breaking news, so if there’s a major incident outside of our normal hours, you can set up a special folder and cart to import to your playout system automatically.
