RADIO MEDIA TOURS
A radio media tour (RMT) is a series of back-to-back radio interviews that allows a spokesperson to be interviewed by multiple radio stations and/or networks within a few hours. RMTs generally take about two to four hours of the spokesperson’s time, depending on how many interviews are completed. Interviews are typically booked in ten-minute windows, allowing a maximum of six scheduled interviews per hour.
