NIH Radio is a 24-hour audio service designed to provide radio stations with the latest information about NIH research findings, highlights of press conferences, and health campaigns.

The NIH Radio News Service has been accessed by approximately 630 radio stations on a weekly basis, which represents a potential audience of 1.5 million listeners per week (or 78 million listeners per year). Survey information indicates that while the vast majority of our subscribers are smaller and mid-market radio stations, several stations in large markets (New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Houston, etc.) also utilize the service.

NIH Health Matters is a series of generic, consumer-oriented stories distributed to 1,000 radio stations quarterly on a CD. Each flight contains at least 40, sixty-second features gathered from the various NIH institutes and centers. Each series is "broadcast ready" for radio stations across the country to use in their local news and information programming.
