A group of volunteers are planning a new online radio station for the West Country.
West Country Radio plans to launch on August 13th providing local news and content the South West of England.
The station says: “As FM radio figures remain on the decline in many areas, and formerly ‘local’ stations now remote their outputs from central studios such as Milton Keynes and London, West Country Radio promises to bring the LOCAL back to radio, with real personality driven shows and informative programming.
“Staffed entirely by volunteers, the presenters will work from their own homes with some delivering live daily shows, and others recording weekly programmes. Initially the station will be live from 7am to 7pm with news, music, debate, information on events and attractions, traffic and weather.”
The station is aimed at visitors the area and local people, and is asking for more volunteer presenters and sponsors.
