Need Help With Radio Ratings?


The Lyles Media Group is an Atlanta-based urban media consultancy that offers a wide range of strategic communications, products, and services. Trusted and respected as one of urban radio’s most successful programming, marketing and media companies dedicated to understanding the current urban trends and music taste.

We specialize in customized formats such as Mainstream Urban, Urban AC, Urban Oldies, Rhythmic, Rhythmic AC, Old School Hip Hop, Urban Sports Talk, Urban News Talk and Gospel. We are committed to get the results you want.

Lyles Media Group is led by the idea that great radio stations are far more than just the music they play. We’re obsessed about getting the music right as the primary objective, but we know that far too often stations cut corners, or fail to maximize their efforts in the non-music segments of their stations. Stations must consider demographically correct content, on-going talent coaching, fresh and frequent community public relations, and last but not least, the new world of social media.

We strongly believe in the power of marketing and advertising, and work with our clients to create, design, and implement smart strategies to help them achieve their goals, to motivate their staffs, and mobilize the audience.

Your ratings success and return depends on the right programming. If you have any questions, we are here to help. Email us at hlyles@urbanradio.com or call 770.594.7171. We’ll get right back to you.
