Spire Radio is a lifestyle branded online community radio station based in Chesterfield Town Centre. Established in 2015, this year we are celebrating 5 years on air with a breadth of special programming and secret projects yet to be revealed. Our station embraces and addresses diversity in content as well as audience, covering all types of music, sport and conversation from Chesterfield, for Chesterfield.
We are run by a team of 30 volunteers from the local area, who we are proud to showcase on air through our website, the TuneIn apps for iPhone, Android and Smart TV and on Alexa and Google Assistant activated Smart Speakers. Our volunteers deliver over 80 hours of live content per week – that’s more than any other radio station in North Derbyshire!
Although aiming mainly at the residents of Chesterfield and North Derbyshire, our stream is accessible across the globe.
On average, over 16,000 individuals connect to our stream per month. This means 40,000 people could hear about your business every month!^
We offer a range of packages which can really make an impact on your business and its sales and services. On air, we broadcast advertisements in three ’ad blocks’ per hour, which already feature a variety of local and national businesses. We also offer sponsorship of shows, individually and full days, please see our rate sheet at the end of this pack for more details.
