Star Radio keeps it local
The team at Star Radio 107.5 pulled together last week to provide extra coverage on the weather situation in Gloucestershire, with extra local programming.
Drive presenter Rich Garvie was joined on Friday evening by breakfast host Craig Wright to offer an additional three hours of live and local broadcasting, instead of the usual networking.
A second day of emergency programming was broadcast on Tuesday as the River Severn burst its banks in Tewkesbury. The non-stop workday was split by Craig and Rich as they kept listeners up to date. Joining the presenters on air were Street Fleet co-ordinator Lucy who was broadcasting live to the station from the scene from 8am and Ana Sills in the Star newsroom. Local police inspectors, emergency services, the met office and other guests such as public transport officials and even insurance advisers took part in the output.
