Southend Radio ready to go

Southend-on-Sea's new local radio station will launch on Friday 28th March at 8am, can reveal. Southend Radio was part-owned by Tindle when they won a licence in April 2006.

Since then, Tindle Radio has withdrawn support for the station and is now operating independently.

Located at purpose built studios in a brand new building on the seafront at Adventure Island, Southend Radio will concentrate on local news and live football reports from Southend United, as well as playing Just Great Songs, as their strapline suggests.

Station Director Sue Wood says “This is an exciting time for everybody involved, the team is so enthusiastic about finally getting the station on air. We’re looking forward to developing strong ties with the local business community, and we want our listeners to feel that this is their radio station.”

The programme controller is drivetime presenter James O’Neill. He says Southend Radio 105.1 will be truly local: "At this time of change for the radio industry, this station is proud to boast live, local content through the day, every day. Our presenters all know Southend, love Southend, and we’ll be talking about the issues that matter to our listeners."
