A temporary radio station in Warrington has launched with the help of Gordon Brown and David Cameron.
Newlove FM is run on behalf of the Newlove Warrington campaign, headed by Helen Newlove who lost her husband Garry Newlove on 12th August 2007 when he was brutally murdered by youths after confronting them about vandalism outside his Warrington home. The campaign is to help provide opportunities for all members of the community and to bridge the gap between generations.
Former Wire FM breakfast host Dominic Walker, and ex-Key 103 and Galaxy presenter Nicksy will both be hosting a daily show, along with Graeme Park, previously a presenter at Juice FM and Kiss. Drivetime is hosted by former Radio City and Juice presenter Neal Atkinson, whilst breakfast features Vicky Duncalf and Vic McGlynn.
Newlove FM launched on 87.7fm yesterday with mesages from Gordon Brown and David Cameron, and will run until July 12th 2009.
