‘Touch & Rugby Fm were looking for a quick turnaround for phase one of their on air refresh. In addition we were also looking for production that would fit our objectives, stand out in a competitive market and wouldn’t break the bank!
We looked at various packages and were impressed by the quality of the material on newsbeds.com which sounded professional and well suited to what we wanted to achieve on air’.

“We had some tough choices. We needed branding that can reinforce the fact the station was changing – but also could see us through an evolution process to a name change in the Spring and the News/Sport/Travel/Weather sequences were a logical place to start. Newsbeds.com found us the right package; and delivered on time. The elegant and sophisticated sound of our music package reflects that investment – for no investment. Really – who’s STILL using library?”
