Top 10 radio stations in Lagos

The continual growth of technology has given people more ways to access information. You could switch on your TV and tune in to any channel or watch on your phone, or go to a social media platform, or read a newspaper online, or listen to local and international news on radio stations. All these mediums continue to play an important role in information sharing. 

Radio broadcasts can provide real-time information, broadcasted 24 hours a day to provide the most recent updates to listeners. Stations have the ability to reach across borders and become a source of information where reliable news is scarce. Its reliability is such that even a lack of electricity cannot hinder the listener from tuning in. Radio goes where newer technologies can’t.  

Local radio is most important to local communities for more than just breaking news and communication during an emergency. They provide an outlet for normal community messaging and activities such as local sports, community events, special events, local business advertising, and so on.  

Radio still has the widest audience footprint, reaching millions, especially those who have no access to the internet – and those who are loyal to the medium.
