JACK Radio is one of the UK’s newest national radio stations, broadcasting on digital radio (DAB+) across the UK and playing music exclusively by female artists. Created by some of the radio industry’s most experienced talent, JACK Radio has been developed by the team who created Absolute Radio. The station launched in October 2018 and provides a platform for women in music, from the stars of the past to today’s main players, alongside new and emerging talent.
The JACK brand originated in Canada and quickly established itself as one of the most successful brands in North America, today attracting over 20-million listeners. In 2007, Ian Walker, Donnach O’Driscoll and Clive Dickens brought the JACK brand to the UK, launching JACKfm in Oxfordshire to much acclaim; it is today the most awarded local commercial radio station in UK radio history, having received over 40 industry commendations, including two for UK Radio Station of the Year.
In 2016, the team launched its first national radio station, Union JACK, playing exclusively British music and comedy. And two years later, continuing to challenge the status quo, launched the new national digital station, JACK Radio, playing music exclusively by female artists.
