Relay broadcast ahead of time (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

early

Here is my best explanation:

'ahead of time' is the definition.

('early' can be a synonym of 'ahead of time')

'relay broadcast' is the subsidiary indication.

'broadcast' indicates an anagram.

'relay' with letters rearranged gives 'early'.

(Other definitions for early that I've seen before include "New-season", "Infancy, when Wordsworth had 5 across of 5 down", "Ahead of time", "Before the ETA", "Premature", "Post this for Christmas?", "This bird catches the worm", "'The ..... bird catches the worm'", "Before appointed time" and "Prematurely".)
