About Us

This is Global

Radio and music is what we live for

We’re proud to be leaders in commercial radio, it’s about keeping things simple, having the courage to stand up for what we believe in, and doing things differently. It’s why 20.7 million listeners* regularly tune in to our stations every single week.

With our obsession, from the biggest, bravest things to the tiniest details, you’ll see why we’re also the UK’s leading independent music publisher too, as well as one of the UK’s foremost music talent companies. With huge artists like, Ellie Goulding, The Wanted, Lawson, LMFAO, Corinne Bailey Rae and the Vaccines on our books, we’re definitely making some waves.

Courage, obsession, passion, simplicity. That’s what UK radio today is all about. And, we’re proud to lead it.

Our Culture

Here's to the Obsessive Ones

At Global we work hard, play hard and always have the courage to do it differently, we want to be the best at everything we do. We don't have a mission statement; we have an Obsession Statement...

Here’s to the obsessive ones who strive to make each detail right, here's to the obsessive ones who listen late at night, here’s to the obsessive ones who bust a gut to deliver for our customers, here’s to the obsessive ones who have the courage to say when something isn’t good enough, here's to the obsessive ones who have the humility to receive those comments well, here’s to the obsessive ones who don’t walk by anything they can put right themselves, here’s to the obsessive ones who dare to try the never been tried before, here’s to the obsessive ones consumed with this crazy love affair called Global, here’s to us.
