Runner-up of Big Brother 6 Eugene Sully has officially switched on Passion Radio, the new digital radio station for Sussex. Following 5 years on-air as an internet station, and a successful trial FM broadcast during May, the station is now available to a potential 715,000 listeners across the South Coast on DAB Digital Radio. Playing a mix of classic and new dance and party tunes alongside travel, news and information for Sussex, the station is one of only a handful of independently-owned DAB services in the UK. Alongside Eugene, who presents a Sunday Morning show, the schedule also boasts dance stars Graham Gold, Matt Darey, Adam H and the popular Hed Kandi radio show.
Managing Director, Simon Hardwick said: “DAB is very exciting – digital radio is the future, but so far DAB has only offered existing FM stations or computer programmed jukeboxes. We’re here to change that with an exciting presenter line-up and locally focussed programming – A real reason to spend that ?30 on a new DAB digital radio! “
Former Kiss 100 presenter Graham Gold joins the station as part of the Friday Night line-up. He said “I moved out of London and into the Sussex countryside to find inspiration for producing, so I was really happy to hear about Passion Radio because there just isn’t anything like it down this way.”
