Radio ORLA, the Internet-based Anglo-Polish radio station has joined forces with community radio station Hayes FM to extend their coverage for the Polish community in west London. The move aims to reach 28,000 Poles in the London Boroughs of Ealing, Hillingdon and Hounslow.
Hayes FM 91.8 will broadcast a range of local radio programmes for the whole area, including targeted music and community programmes, including for the Irish, Polish, South Asian, African and Caribbean to a very diverse population in West London.
Polish-born Lukasz speaks fluent English, Polish and French and will be heard on Hayes FM at 7pm to 9pm Saturdays.
George Matlock, managing director of Radio ORLA, says: "Radio ORLA is very pleased to have been approached with this proposal as it is an endorsement of our content and established position in the market for Polish programming. We are especially keen to foster stronger and positive ties with other communities. In fact, we already provide knowledge to other East European communities about how to broadcast online. I know Lukasz will be a fine bi-lingual entertainer for the Hayes-based community."
Sutish Sharma, managing editor of Hayes FM, says: "Hayes FM offers a format that cannot be found anywhere in the world, and the partnership with Radio ORLA, not only adds great value to our output but continues our commitment to bring communities together and bring about positive change for our area through solidarity.”
