Radio Media Tour

A Radio Media Tour, or RMT, includes strategy, notification, booking, production, transmission, and detailed reporting. Megaphone ensures a successful tour of 15-25 radio interviews.

Our team has almost twenty years of experience with RMTs. Our tours routinely book multiple national networks, with audience figures starting at 7 million.
