Insight expands across the UK

Insight Radio – the Royal National Institute of Blind People's radio station broadcasting across the UK for blind and partially sighted people – is expanding by creating new satellite studios in Edinburgh, Newcastle, Manchester, Birmingham, London and Cardiff.

The first of these new studios will open in Edinburgh, London and Cardiff in the next two months.

Senior Producer Yvonne Milne says: "This is an exciting time for RNIB's award winning radio service and I'm looking forward to building teams in these areas around the UK to feed local and regional programming material into the national output of Insight Radio. We'll be advertising for Broadcast Producers to join us at these locations in the next month or so."

Head of Radio for RNIB, Ross Macfadyen says: "RNIB is investing money in radio as it regards radio as a must-have for its core target audience. Blind and partially sighted people across the UK are able to access information, news, books, newspapers, magazines which are featured on air as well as a range of other programming strands which are produced and presented by blind and partially sighted presenters 24 hours a day."

Insight Radio is funded by RNIB along with partner organisations – Glasgow City Council, East Renfrewshire Council, South Lanarkshire Council, British Wireless for the Blind Fund. The station currently broadcasts on 101FM in the Glasgow area and on Sky 0188, Freesat 777 and online.
