Upload Radio is now broadcasting across North Yorkshire after being added to the region’s digital multiplex.
Upload Radio allows anyone to buy a time slot and put their own show on the radio, and already broadcasts around London and parts of the North West of England. This additional outlet replaces the Gloucestershire service.
Station Manager Matt Deegan told RadioToday: “We’ve been overwhelmed with the response to Upload Radio in London and the North West, but have had a steady stream of requests for us to expand the service. Today’s launch across North Yorkshire means we’re broadcasting to an area where half a million people live”.
The station’s launch coincides with the establishment of the Radio Academy’s new Segue event – a radio and audio expo in Leeds supported by Leeds bid. Upload Radio is planning to broadcast selected sessions from the event.
Other shows North Yorkshire listeners will be able to hear from today include David Lloyd’s Conversations – including hour-long interviews with Peter Levy and Michael Barton and programmes from the University of York’s URY, recently nominated for five Student Radio Awards and a new show from Yorkshire-based broadcaster, and Radio Today Deputy Editor, Stuart Clarkson.
Matt continues: “The best thing about Upload Radio’s schedule though, is that there are loads of gaps too – so anyone can get their show on the radio – all they need to do is visit uploadradio.com”
As well as on DAB Digital Radio, listeners can tune in on the website and the Radioplayer mobile apps where visitors can listen live or to any show from the last 30 days.
