Bay FM presenter does 49 hours non stop

Radio presenter Chris Tees has just completed broadcasting non-stop for 49 hours raising funds towards a local community radio stations launch cost.
Chris said “I planned to do 48 hours but, forgot about the clocks going back that weekend when I booked the time off work but, I was determined to do the whole weekend. It was extremely hard especially watching the studio clock go back an hour Sunday morning”.

The challenge raised just over £900 with help from the other volunteers at the station who supported Chris throughout with food and coffee.

The fundraising event was also given an extra boost when local businessman Martin Gill pledged to match what Chris raised.

The Exmouth based station Bay FM Radio was awarded a full-time licence earlier this year and plans to launch soon on 106.4 serving Exmouth, Budleigh Salterton, Woodbury and surrounding areas.

Station manager Andy Green said, “It’s truly brilliant what he’s done and raised for the station, he’s a credit to us all. I would like to thank everyone for their donations and support for Chris and the station”
