A community radio station which won a licence over two years ago is getting ready to launch.
Dales Radio – covering some of the Yorkshire Dales National Park – will officially launch on Monday January 11th 2016 using AM and FM frequencies, and is owned by some of the original team behind Yorkshire Dales Radio.
In Settle and Grassington the station is on 104.9FM and covers Hawes/Central Dales on 936AM. Dales Radio will be going on FM in Ingleton, Leyburn, Kirkby Stephen and Sedburgh in the near future too.
Dales Radio will be funded through grants, donations and local advertising and is currently looking for volunteers. Its new website is now online at DalesRadio.co along with an online stream.
Yorkshire Dales Radio launched in 1997 and was sold to UKRD in October 2012.
