BBC Introducing is the brand for new music programmes across the BBC radio stations, showcasing unsigned, self-signed and other emerging musical talent primarily from the UK. Launched in 2007 the Introducing brand brings programming from across the BBC under a unified brand with each show retaining its own identity. Introducing has also been extended to the BBC's stages at major festivals such as Glastonbury. Introducing shows can now be found on most BBC Radio stations from national to local. In 2010 BBC Introducing was awarded the best new platform to discover music at the BT Digital Music Awards. In May 2011, BBC Introducing won the Gold award for Best Use of Multiplatform at the Sony Radio Academy Awards.
Since 5 January 2013, every BBC Local Radio station across England and the Channel Islands broadcasts a BBC Introducing programme at 8pm on Saturday evenings.
