A new online radio station has started in the Rossendale Valley by Bacup Borough FC.
Boro Radio will mostly play music but also offer live match commentary of all games played home and away by the North West Counties Football League side.
Steven Brown, Media Officer at Bacup Borough FC tells RadioToday: “With over 10 years radio experience I am hoping that the Rossendale community will embrace the new sound of the Valley and that local and regional businesses will also find its arrival as an opportunity to increase their own exposure through advertising.
“It’s a big step for the football club and quite unique for a club of our size.”
