Bexley’s new FM radio station

Bexley’s newest radio station, TGR Sound (Thames Gateway Radio Sound) has just been awarded a five-year licence to transmit in the borough on the FM dial.

The long awaited announcement finally came from industry regulator OFCOM recently. It means that the station can now reach even more Bexley residents than the 3,000 listeners a month already logging on to its website.

The station hosts programmes ranging from sport and the latest community news to specialist music shows including rock, soul, indie and classical.

Transmission will continue on the internet at while OFCOM works towards allocating a frequency. The volunteer members of the station are working towards a November launch date.

Development Manager Andrew Sayers says: “Bexley is finally getting what it deserves, a dedicated radio station that serves the interests of its community, giving the listener a real alternative to commercial stations that dominate the airwaves in this area.

As a community station we have much more flexibility with our programming and can be much more reactive to what Bexley residents want without the constraints that other stations have. The station is run purely by dedicated volunteers who are professionally trained, live in the community they serve and know who their listeners are.”

TGR Sound has built up a solid listenership since launching more than a year ago on the internet and has hosted three of the borough’s biggest community events. The ongoing support of Bexley Council, Welling Round Table, Trust Thamesmead and others is much appreciated.
