Local radio stations join together for Wetherby and Harrogate DAB

Wetherby and Harrogate Local DAB LTD has announced it intends to apply for the recently advertised Wetherby and Harrogate small scale DAB multiplex.

The group is a collaboration between local radio station Your Harrogate, Harrogate Hospital Radio and Tempo FM the community station serving the Wetherby area.

Harrogate Hospital Radio launched in 1977 to serve patients, visitors and staff alike. The station upgraded to 95.3 FM in September.

Tempo FM has been broadcasting to Wetherby and surrounding villages since 2006 and is well supported by the local business community.

Your Harrogate launched online on 1st March 2021 and recently expanded its reach by launching on the North Yorkshire DAB multiplex.

Nick Hancock from Your Harrogate is delighted to be working with the other local stations: “We firmly believe that by working together with neighbouring stations we can improve listening choices across the area.”

“We’ve had such a great response since we launched Your Harrogate we know that this area always gets behind local projects.”

“Now we would love to hear from other radio stations and organisations both locally and across the UK who would like to be part of the new Wetherby and Harrogate DAB multiplex.”

You can contact Nick Hancock to express an interest by emailing Nick@yourharrogate.co.uk.
