We present the spectral characteristics of a sample of Intermediate- Luminosity Broad-Line Radio Galaxies in X- rays, optical and radio. Here, we focus on the radio spectra acquired with the 100 m radio telescope in Effelsberg between 2.6 GHz and 32 GHz. These measurements reveal different spectral shapes urging for radio imaging that would disclose the source morphology. Comparing them with the X-ray spectra acquired with XMM-Newton, we find that sources with steep radio spectrum are heavily obscured whereas flat spectrum ones appear unabsorbed in accordance with unified scheme.
