A further five local commercial stations have signed up to UKRD’s Local Radio Day initiative.
Anglian Radio Group, with five stations across East Anglia, including Town 102 in Ipswich and Radio Norwich 99.9, are the latest group to sign up to support the day which is scheduled to take place on 27th May.
They join Revolution 96.2 covering Oldham, Rochdale and surrounds and together with the two BBC local stations announced earlier in the week, brings to total now engaged to over 40.
“It’s fantastic to see such a good response to this initiative and we are delighted that the numbers involved just keep growing,” said UKRD’s CEO, William Rogers.
“We will shortly be publishing research about local radio and this will emphasise even further how important this part of our sector is to the local communities it serves.”
