Audio shout-outs are a feature available in our Pro & Business offers. They allow your listeners to leave audio messages that you can broadcast on your radio.
Here’s how to highlight your audio shout-outs and share them with your listeners.
Spice up your live broadcasts
When you do live broadcasts, don’t hesitate to ask your listeners for their opinion. For example, ask a question at the beginning of the show and ask your listeners to answer it using audio shout-outs. This will allow you to broadcast your listeners’ answers throughout your show. Easier and more accessible than a telephone line, this will help you create a link between you and your listeners.
Top Tip: To broadcast your audio shout-outs live, download them from your Radio Manager and then integrate them into your broadcasting software and broadcast them as you would with a classic track.
Organise contests & prize draws
You can imagine contests where your listeners can participate via audio shout-outs! Ask them to sing a song, tell an anecdote or joke and choose the best one.
You can even ask them to create a short jingle, so you can broadcast it on your radio, you can be sure that your listeners will stay tuned to hear their creation!
Perhaps your listeners are looking for a car, a job or are organising an event, encourage them to broadcast a short classified ad on your radio station! You can even make money from this service if you like!
Of course your listeners can also ask for a specific song or even leave you a nice message via the audio shout-out feature!
How to integrate the audio shout-outs?
Once they have been recorded, your shout-outs are only waiting for one thing: to be broadcast on your radio! There are several ways to do this:
Create a playlist
Create a playlist by dragging & dropping your audio shout-outs. You can them integrate this playlist directly into your Planning.
Via the Daily Generation
Head over to Scheduling > Daily Generation, here you’ll be able to search for the shout-out you want to broadcast in the “Add a track” section on the right.
You can then simply drag & drop the shout-out into your programming.
Head over to Scheduling > Breaks. You can then insert a new break by clicking on the orange button in the top right-hand corner. Choose the day and time that you want to broadcast the shout-out, you can even choose to repeat it. You can choose your shout-out under the Content tab.
Careful: Don’t forget to regenerate your day if you want your changes to be taken into account!
