Penistone FM gets bigger office and studio space

Community station Penistone FM is moving to a new studio and office location after getting a five year licence extension.

The station has signed a five year lease for space in a new local development, made partly possible through an “Awards for All” community grant from the Big Lottery.

Penistone FM began transmitting from its current home on the upper floors of a retail/office unit in the centre of Penistone in June 2009 and Ofcom recently renewed the station’s FM operating licence until June 2019.

Martin Sugden, Station Director: I’m very proud to be able to announce this re-location for Penistone FM, which is exciting news for all our listeners, presenters & clients. We have had a happy five years in our current location but have always planned to grow with time and offer more. The new easy access location maintains Penistone FM’s brand as being at ‘The Heart of the Community’ and will allow us to improve our programmes & services whilst, at the same time, offering the ability to become part of a highly successful community radio station to many more members of the public”. The support through an “Awards for All “grant is amazing and would like to thank them for their help in this development.

The move to Suite 7 of the Penistone 1 Development adjacent to the Market Barn will be a gradual transition of services to the new studios and the station is hoping to be fully re-located by the end of March 2015.
