Advertising Sales Agent
UK Health Radio is currently looking for people to help sell radio advertising/station sponsorships on UK Health Radio and in our very successful digital Health Triangle Magazine. Now you might be thinking that we are only looking for people from within the health and wellness sector, which naturally is correct but not 100% correct. If for example you are well connected in the holiday travel sector, you are also at the right place as regeneration plays a big part in everybody’s health. If for example you are connected to the motor industry who are now selling E-cars, which is good for our environment /less pollution and therefore good for our health. Another yes for the environment is solar energy, wind energy, eco homes, etc.
Then we have health clubs, fitness clubs, fitness equipment and clothing, spa’s, the health food sector, still and sparkling water companies, sports gear companies like Wilson, Head, Babolat, Yonex, Speedo (yes you guest it, I am a BIG tennis and swimming fan), bicycle manufacturers, even British Gas, that are now offering new boilers that use half of the energy they used before, the list really is endless.
Naturally not forgetting the more obvious areas, such as companies that manufacture or distribute asthma pumps, wheelchairs, knee and elbow-braces and all the other braces, special chairs and beds, diabetic testing kits, blood pressure …

Who are we?
UK Health Radio is a digital radio station – 100% independent and the first of its kind! As our name suggests, we are UK-based and we focus primarily on health. Because this is an Internet-based medium, our ‘reach’ is global. So it will not surprise you to hear that our programming is not just national, but international in style.
Over the last year, we have increased the number of shows and audio blogs, on a monthly, sometimes weekly basis. This is great news for our listeners as we offer the widest range of health and wellness topics of any radio station across the globe.
Something we are truly proud of!
We have listeners in all the “blue” coloured countries
We purposefully do not favour either natural health, nor mainstream health, but feature both side by side, with the intention not to provoke but to inform. We have created a community of better informed people and we provide the professionals, who serve them, with a platform for evidence-based information on best practice. Our shows and website are designed to provide a primary source of the latest information on health and fitness, diet and nutrition, illness prevention and cure.
UK Health Radio is an information station, real “feel good” radio. UK Health Radio is, real “ethical” radio.
UK Health Radio and our very own Health Triangle Magazine feature programs and articles on issues of general health, digestion, back pain, allergies, skin care, weight management, migraines, nutrition, indigestion, cardiovascular care, women’s and men’s health, mental health, diabetes, dental health, elder care, caregiving, sexual health, avoidance of stress, avoidance of accidents and trauma, …. even pet health.
Features on cancer, cancer prevention, cancer treatments, fitness, homeopathy, on sleep, helping teenagers and parents through puberty, on sport, on how to communicate your health problems to your health professional, the list is endless.
If you listen to UKHR, I guarantee you will be informed. And being informed is that first step to attaining and/or keeping your “Health Freedom“.
We are on-air 24/7. We average around 250 000 unique listeners per month.
Well over half of our listeners are aged between 25 and 44. This is the single biggest group by a significant margin. So 4 out of 5 of our listeners are currently under 55 and only 8,42% are past the current retirement age for males. We have a 70%/30% split between female and male.
The main interactions with our audiences are through the radio (www.ukhealthradio.com) and the free monthly digital health and wellness magazine, Health Triangle Magazine
(www.HealthTriangleMagazine.com) which boasts a readership of between 100 000 and 120 000 per month. Across our network of Twitter accounts, we average a 100,000 followers and an increasing number of Facebook fans.
We also attend external events – from outside broadcasts at anywhere from a medical cold storage manufacturer in Paris or a new Natural Burial Centre in Surrey through to being the official media partners for major exhibitions such as The Pharmacy Show or Back Pain Show.
In addition, we are proud Official Media Partners of several charities and international events such as the “Healthcare Crisis Think Tank” which took place on the 28th March 2015 and UK Health Radio was there, reporting and broadcasting LIVE on the day.
