Community Radio Matters



Defining Radio for the 21st Century

Deal Radio is a completely new media experience. DR's Programs reflect the needs and interests of its audience, fundamentally DR is about radio of the community, for the community, by the community.

As a community station, DR will take advantage of the rise of internet, DAB, mobile communication and social media to improve content and reach even broader audiences. With music, chat, sport, news and debate DR has something for everyone.
