About Us

Francis Currie Consulting specialises in providing independent, expert support to radio stations around the world. 

The business was established in 2007 by Francis Currie. It was built on over twenty-five years of radio programming experience. Since then, we have worked with my different radio stations in different countries, to help them unlock their potential and to maximise their performance.

Between 2017 and 2019, Francis led the programming team that re-launched national radio station, Virgin Radio UK, with the Chris Evans Breakfast Show. It was one of the most successful, and most talked-about, turnarounds in the radio world.

Client Testimonials

What Some Of Our Clients Have To Say

Francis worked with the Breakfast Show and Mid-Morning teams at BBC Radio Stoke on a number of occasions.

He was always encouraging, supportive, professional & well-prepared. He wasn’t afraid to give tough messages when necessary and handled potentially tricky situations with aplomb. I was never worried he’d be giving the wrong message.

Perhaps the best testimonial I can give is that the teams – both presenters and producers – always felt they’d gained from his guidance and were keen to have him back.

The legacy…the teams were more confident, creative, took more ownership of their shows and listening figures increased.
Sue Owen
When we started to work with Francis, we had fallen to very low audience figures, and knew we needed to move in a different direction.

Francis was the right person in right time. His knowledge, skills and mainly strategic insights helped us grasp the situation and direct the radio in the right direction.

Also thanks to him we have developed a new communication strategy with updated the branding, edited the music architecture and modified the program structure.

The results? In 12 months we have seen Daily ratings increase by 31%, Weekly ratings by 29% and Market Share by 40%!

I worked with Francis when he programmed Heart FM, propelled it to and kept it at #1 in London.

I worked with him (each in our own area of expertise) to help grow stations as a consultant.

And I’ve been proud to co-present with Francis at international gatherings where I’ve seen Francis hold audiences spellbound.

His knowledge of programming is rock solid.

In my opinion, his most unique skill is his unmatched ability to pass that knowledge on to others – his skills at coaching, whether helping air talent or programmers who want to become among the best in the world.
