NE1fm returns after three month absence

Community radio station NE1fm has resumed broadcasting after a three-and-a-half month break.

The station had been off-air since April due to a transmitter relocation but continued programmes online.

The station, run entirely by volunteers, covers the communities of Newcastle and Gateshead and tells us they have been busy arranging a move to a new transmitter site, obtaining approval from site owners and broadcast regulator Ofcom, along with installing new broadcast equipment.

NE1fm has introduced new branding for the return to its frequency of 102.5 FM, and is set to introduce a local news team in the near future, providing updates specific to the Newcastle and Gateshead area, on the hour from midday until 6PM daily. They are currently looking for additional volunteers.
