  4. 4. The Radio station launched in 2004 and attracts a listenership of over 1 million nationwide with an audience share of 4.2%. The station targets teenagers and adult rock fans but plays more mainstream, softer music than which is promoted in their magazine during the day and the heavy-rock during the night, reaffirming their links with the magazine. The mainstream music of the day could link again to the secondary market, a less harsh image would attract more listens and in junction to this, more readers. Yet when the listenership reaches it’s low peak of the day at night, the station reverts back to it’s hard rock status, showing that predominantly they are targetting that genre.Radio
  5. 5. Kerrang! TV was set up in 2001 and has a similar format to the radio station, being that it plays more mainstream music than its magazine namesake. This channel is available to anyone with satellite, clearly aiming above their target range of D and C2, which is a clear indication of their secondary consumers. This too could be for secondary readership figures as the more neutral music may bring in consumers outside of their target range. The fact they have a TV channel which anyone can access shows their keen convergence to attract new audiences.Kerrang! TV
