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 craft and management training and coaching for any radio genre with experience of individuals, groups and programme teams, 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. And we operate our own radio station too, as a test-bed for new ideas and technology. And because we love the 80s. Max is live on DAB Digital Radio in Manchester, via TuneIn, and at

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