Radio

Virgin Radio is a true international Lovemark: its strong rock music positioning puts musical programming at its heart, featuring carefully selected songs and the right balance of current and classic songs.

Virgin Radio's mission is to be the go-to station for the community of rock music fans in Italy. The station's schedule features some of the leading talents in the world of rock music in Italy: DJ Ringo, Paola Maugeri, Dr. Feelgood, Massimo Cotto, Andrea Rock and Giulia Salvi are just some of the names that light up Virgin Radio's daily schedule.

2018 was a fundamental year in the image strengthening process for the Virgin Radio brand: several world-famous rock stars lent their image in support of the Rock Ambassador campaign, a project that saw artists such as Dave Grohl, Noel Gallagher and Jared Leto come out in support of the station and the rock values it embodies.

Live music continues to represent one of the cornerstones of the station's positioning: in 2018, Virgin Radio was involved in some of Italy's most important Rock events: among those iDays Festival (with, amongst others, Pearl Jam and Noel Gallagher), Firenze Rocks (with Guns n' Roses, Foo Fighters, Iron Maiden and Ozzy Osbourne) and Milano Rocks (with, amongst others, Thirty seconds to Mars)

Community engagement did not only take place through concerts but also through a series of on-field activities appropriate to the target audience and linked to the world of sport, especially in the motorbike and car racing sector: Virgin Radio participated actively in important events including the Formula 1 Milan Festival, Superbike World Championship and the Verona Motorbike Expo, and was the official radio station of the Virgin Obstacle Run in Milan, in collaboration with Virgin Active gyms.

Virgin Radio is also very active on the digital front, with a very large community on its website, social media channels and mobile app.

From the technology point of view, signal coverage was improved during the year, above all in Lombardy, through the acquisition of new frequencies. Significant developmental maintenance activities were also carried out on transmission equipment and systems.

The new Radio Ter survey recorded the following audience figures for Virgin Radio at the end of 2018: 2,623,000 average daily listeners and 7,379,000 listeners in 7 days.
