DAB and FM station for Farnborough Airshow

The organisers of Farnborough International Airshow 2016 are putting on a radio station for the event this year.

The radio operation will be headed by Fred Marden, who ran the station in the 2000s before stepping back to host the breakfast show BBC Southern Counties Radio and then running media production teaching in a university department.

It will be on DAB digital across a large part of the south east of England, with a potential audience of 3.8 million, as well as on FM radio in the Farnborough area.

“I’m so excited to be back,” Fred said. “As someone brought up in Farnborough I know just how great the airshow is, and I can’t wait to be involved in covering this prestigious international aerospace event again.”

Farnborough Airshow Radio will broadcast all speech with news, interviews, features and commentary from the seven day event.

Fred has appointed a team of radio professionals including BBC World Service presenter Danny Cox, BBC Radio Oxford’s Paul Jenner and specialist business journalist and presenter Paul Hutton. They will be assisted by Simon Clarke of Wave 105, and former BBC Radio Four announcer Matt Jones.

Andrew Pearcey, Marketing & Communications Director for Farnborough International said: “We are thrilled to have Fred, Paul and their team on board to deliver the radio station this year. With such a professional team of broadcasters and aviation experts on board we know this will provide visitors to the world’s most famous airshow with a great service”.
