Passion's 5th birthday bash

Digital radio station Passion for the Planet is celebrating five years of broadcasting on DAB next week, and is holding a party at their offices in Wimbledon. The station was part of the original application for the third and final London licence, and launch on 10th September 2002.

Since then Passion for the Planet has expanded into other regions, with services on Now Digital multiplexes in Essex, Peterborough, Bristol/Bath, Exeter/Torbay and Bournemouth. It's the only radio station in the UK to focus on health, the environment and personal development.

Founders Chantal Cooke and Kenny Stevens are passionate about the planet and protecting the people and animals that live on it — and it was this that inspired them to launch Passion for the Planet. They believed that these were issues that needed talking about in a positive and inspiring way. It is an ethos they still live by and while the media landscape has changed and environment is the new “rock’n’roll”, the message is still a negative one.

Passion has received awards recognising its environmental credentials; in 2004 the station was given a British Environment and Media Award (BEMA) and in 2006 it was recognised as part of the Green Guardian Awards.
