Cheshire FM launches on 92.5

Mid-Cheshire's community radio station, Cheshire FM, took to the airwaves at 8 this morning with [i]The Full Cheshire Breakfast[/i]. The station, set up by Wire FM founders David Duffy and Phil Houltby, was one of the last to be licensed by Ofcom in the first round of community radio awards.

It broadcasts from the Verdin Exchange small business centre in the town of Winsford and serves the neighbouring communities of Northwich and Middlewich with popular music and professionally-produced programming, including local news and sport coverage. The area has been traditionally under-served by existing commercial and BBC stations.

Presenters include Phil Johnson, formerly of Wire, Dee and Radio Norwich, at breakfast. Afternoon drivetimes are presented by Laura Knight while more specialist community shows fill evening slots. The broadcaster is backed by a number of local organisations, including Cheshire County Council, Mid-Cheshire College and the North West Regional Development Agency.

Cheshire FM launches after just one day of test transmissions on 92.5 FM from their facility at a salt mine in the village of Moulton. They can be heard in Northwich, Winsford, Middlewich, Holmes Chapel and around the wider Cheshire area as well as online.
