Radio Worm is born again

Warrington's community station Radio Worm is to change direction after failing to secure a community licence from Ofcom. A name change to Radio Warrington is first, followed by digital broadcasting via Nokia's new Internet Radio Application.

The station, which is ran by three local radio enthusiasts Mike Mason, Steve Lewis and David Lawrenson, will re-launch on Monday.

Mike Mason formerly of Imagine FM and Wire FM said: "Not winning the license has made us stronger we have some exciting plans and we’re able to do these digitally. I’m not ruling out an application for an FM license should the opportunity arise in the future, however, until such a time we’re working hard on a digital presence."

The programme schedule includes uninterrupted rugby commentary hosted by seasoned rugby league commentators Graham Lovatt and Mark Naughton, plus programming for almost all musical genres and decades with dedicated dance music, soul music and rock music shows.

Radio Warrington is also doing a lot to represent the community by this week shaking on a partnership with Warrington Disability Partnership, part of that deal will be to provide the station with purpose built studios.
