Chorley FM's commitment to providing radio skills training has started to take shape, following a re-branding of the community radio station earlier this year.
The first open house training schedule is expected to take place this summer, with station bosses saying they are intended to be fun and informative whilst helping to build a foundation on which local people may want to pursue involvement in the station.
Steven Normyle, director of advertising and marketing, and training coordinator, said: “We offered this commitment in our application for our license as we believe that a community station should be more than just a source of entertainment for the local community.
“We love the fact that local people want to listen to the station – but we want to give local people more than just that. We believe that we are in the perfect position to provide local people with skills that may well help them achieve more in their everyday lives."
The station broadcasts on 102.8 FM via a community radio licence from Ofcom.
