Hello. We are 2ZY.

We help people sound better on the air. We consult for radio stations. And we produce radio programming.

2ZY offers bespoke media training, whether you're being interviewed on air for the first time, or need specific training to respond to a news event. From nervous rookie to experienced network presenters, we can coach your on-air performance to make you sound better, build confidence and really connect with your audience.

2ZY works on-station too. We provide bespoke training for any radio genre - with experience of one to one and show-team coaching, working at any level from beginners to senior management.

We make shows too. We're equally at home with live formats, built documentaries, podcast production, and sequence music shows.

We believe in making better radio, and making radio better.
