Over fifty radio stations have now confirmed they will participate in this years’ Local Radio Day event.
On the day itself, 26th May, local radio stations will celebrate local radio engagement in the areas and communities they broadcast to.
Local Radio Day will be reflected by all areas of the radio industry, from the charitable, community and commercial sector through to BBC Local Radio. Paul Jenner from BBC Radio Oxford said on confirming the radio station would be participating: “We’re delighted to support Local Radio Day. Every day, we’re live across Oxfordshire reflecting our different communities, including historic Oxford and rural towns like Chipping Norton and Witney. On Local Radio Day itself, we’ll be broadcasting from as many areas as possible in the county, hearing people’s stories and getting listeners involved in their local radio station.”
Dave Coull, Group Content Director at UKRD added: “I am delighted with the number of proper local radio stations that have already signalled they will be participating in Local Radio Day this year. All of which are uniquely placed to deliver content, on-air, online and on-the- street that specifically appeals to the area and communities they serve”.
Coull added: “If you work at a proper local radio station and you’d like to get involved please don’t hesitate in contacting me directly or through the contact page at localradioday.co.uk“.
