It is up to the show host to get in touch with you if they are interested in getting you on their show. If there is a certain show you are looking to appear on, I would recommend sending the show a message via the contact me button on their webpage or via their social media platforms.
GROW Radio cannot guarantee that you will become a guest on any of the shows, we can only give you the opportunity and share your information with the show hosts.
How can I change my guest profile on GROW Radio?
All you need to do is fill out a new form and we will update your information accordingly. You can access the form here.
Why are you charging £50 per year and £5 to upload your show?
We believe that having a regular time slot on the radio station, having access to future guests, your own individual profile, chance for people to listen to your podcast on demand (via your RSS feed) and the other memberships benefits you get from being part of GROW Radio warrants a cost and at £50, we believe that is very good value for money.
If you would like us to upload your show for you, that’s ok but it takes time to do upload and schedule your content. You can upload your show yourself for free and if you have any questions about that, please contact us and we will happily answer them.
