The thrust of the study is to bridge the gap in knowledge by examining motivations for participation in phone-in programmes on Osun state radio and investigate any variations in the radio listeners’ participation in phone-in programmes on Osun state radio in terms of age. To achieve this and in line with the Uses and Gratification Theory upon which the study is premised, Survey and in-depth interview methods were used with a sample size of 384 respondents which were selected randomly for the survey while 5 presenters of the selected phone-in programmes were interviewed and analysed. The findings indicated among other things that the majority of the respondents often participate in phone-in programmes on Osun state radio when the topic of discussion interest them; due to programmes’ format, when a favourite presenter was anchoring.
