Kevin Kilpatrick – Radio Imaging
Radio is a wealth of content. From music to commercials and, of course, radio imaging.
Radio Imaging sounds complex, but it’s a very simple concept. It’s simply the voice you hear when it’s time to announce what is coming up next, or at the top of the hour when the station must broadcast their call sign to let listeners know what station they are tuned into. While the station may play a ton of music and broadcast many commercials, the radio imaging voice, in effect, becomes a sort of voice of the station. Therefore, you want a voice that connects with your audience and fits the vibe of your programming. The tone of these voiceovers may vary depending on the genre and target demographic, but this builds the platform on which your audience will remember your station.
Radio imaging is what sets you apart from the rest and keeps your audience tuning-in to your station for more. Every day of the year, thousands of people listen to your channel to hear their favorite music, as well as connect to radio personalities. With the right voice, you will be able to add a bit more joy and comfort to the listeners’ experience as tune in.
How to Make Radio Imaging Stand Out
Radio imaging is how you create your station’s specific brand. It makes the content stand out from other stations and is a great way to increase listener engagement. Building a loyal fan base does take time, but when you add the perfect voice for your radio imaging accompanied by some stellar, on brand sound effects, you will be able to create the perfect imaging that highlights the uniqueness of your station.
When it comes to crafting the right imaging for your station, consider a combination of good script writing, sound effects, jingles, and voiceover. These elements make radio station promos and imaging worth listening to. It’s what builds a brand and keeps growing your audience. Although there is nothing visually available to keep the listener engaged, the power in capturing their attention all lies in good radio imaging. While the background music and writing are important, it’s the voice that ties it all together. This is where Kevin comes in.
