Cambridge student station joins DAB multiplex

Student-run Core Radio Cambridge is to be included on a local DAB digital radio multiplex.

The radio station, produced by students at Cambridge Regional College, is broadcasting live on DAB offering a mix of music and news.

Lecturer and journalist Pam Mungroo said the students would also sell their own advertising to keep the station running. “This is a huge breakthrough because students don’t often have the chance to work on a radio station while still at college,” she said.

“They will be part of a commercial radio station, responsible for producing and presenting their own programmes and finding the right mix that brings in the listeners.

“It’s a fantastic opportunity to put into practice everything they are learning on their course and reach an audience of up to 1,000 people.

“We want the radio station to be self-sufficient so the students will be selling adverts, looking for sponsorship and playing requests for a donation,” she said.

Each student will present a programme that focuses on their favourite genre of music: anything from Grime to Heavy Metal, Folk Music and songs celebrating the independent woman.

Core Radio Cambridge, which until now has only been regularly available to college listeners, can be found on DAB 7D, and online using the TuneIn app.
