HOW FRONTLINE HELPS RADIO STATIONS
FROM AL JAZEERA'S KONY INVESTIGATION TO SAWA SHABBAB'S PEACEBUILDING WORK IN SOUTH SUDAN, FRONTLINE HAS HELPED HUNDREDS OF RADIO STATIONS BUILD Interactive PROGRAMMING.
Tap Into The Power of Your Audience
No one knows better than your audience what makes your radio station great. Frontline helps radio stations engage their audience with the world's most popular engagement platform: messaging.
Messaging not only increases engagement, it also creates opportunities to make broadcast content interactive, build your brand off-air, and explore new revenue models.
Frontline makes it easy to bring the audience into your broadcast, using the mobile phone that's already in their pocket.
Go Beyond the Limits of Broadcast with SMS
Radio is the world's most powerful broadcast platform - but even it has limits. Radio requires listeners to be engaged at a fixed time, hosts are limited by airtime, and stations can be bound by limited revenue and listener proximity.
With Frontline, radio broadcasts are the feature, but messaging fills the gaps. Use SMS to bridge on- and off-air engagement and overcome the limits of the broadcast format.
Frontline makes it easy to manage asynchronous communication, creating opportunities for listeners to stay engaged even when your radio personalities are off air.
Better Tools for Real-Time Engagement
On-air engagement is tough. There are countless relays across multiple spectrums vying for every precious moment of airtime. But with Frontline messaging automation, you're already ahead of the pack.
With Frontline, you can create polls, aggregate song requests, and visualize the results with easy-to-use graphs in real-time. These tools mean that you can go from receiving texts to understanding messages.
Connect seamlessly with one listener or many, without ever skipping a beat or missing a voice.

HOW FRONTLINE HELPED A LOCAL RADIO STATION IN ZAMBIA USE MOBILE TO PROMOTE CLIMATE STEWARDSHIP
Radio is the world's farthest reaching communication platform - and for a long time, in many places, it was the only one. But the advent of mobile has opened up the opportunity for radio stations, even small community radio stations, to become move past broadcast to being the center of conversation.That makes radio the best way to educate and engage listeners on important issues, like climate change.
Frontline paired with Developing Radio Partners and four radio stations across Zambia to conduct interactive programming and a listener survey, to collect information about agricultural practices and perceptions of climate change. Not only were our partner radio stations able to engage hundreds of listeners, they were also able to gather data from communities that live in the last mile, helping radio stations target messages, expert interviews, and content to meet their needs. By building responsive content, our radio partners played an important role in informing global conversation, as well as their own listeners, tracking perceptions, behavior change, and important disconnects in the way environmental messages reach into rural areas.
The outcome? Citizens are more informed about their relationship to climate change, journalists have more capacity to engage, and international advocates know more about how to focus their efforts and limited resources. All through the power of Radio and SMS.
