New Year boost for radio station

A community radio station is aiming to start the new year by securing time on the airwaves.

Bosses at Radio Northumberland, which was established in January 2012, are currently applying for a full-time five year FM Community Licence from OfCom.

Radio Northumberland, based in Bedlington, has been running as a full time on-line community radio station since January 2012.

Stewart Allen, station manager, said: “We operate a central schedule of local news with the News Post Leader, music and local information.

“Local people can get involved with a poem, story, feature, one-off show or a regular commitment.

“There is a wide variety of shows from Punk to the Owld Record Club of 1940/50s music, which we also distribute to a couple of local old people’s homes.

“We have broadcast many hours of local music and live buskers nights and have ‘15 minutes of fame’ where local talent can be showcased.”

The radio station has also been involved in a number of events including Morpeth Fair, Bedlington Olympic Torch Relay, Chilli-Fest and their Isabella Community Christmas Fair and the Christmas Fair at Seaton Delaval Hall.

They also include non-league football in their sport coverage, with both Bedlington Terriers and Blyth Spartans matches covered live.

Mr Allen added: “Most importantly we have grown the number of local people involved in radio, with very little money and the hard work of our volunteers.”

Radio Northumberland has taken delivery of equipment purchased by Northumbria Police.

Radio Northumberland Station Manager, Stewart Allen (left), said "We are very grateful to Northumbria Police for what is the very first external funding we have had since we started in January 2012. Radio Northumberland will be using the equipment to produce even more quality programmes from our studios in West Sleekburn."   

Radio Northumberland Head of Sport, Jonny Hall (right) told us "Radio Northumberland will be live from our local football clubs in the season ahead - this begins with the FA Cup Tie between Bedlington Terriers and Morpeth Town on Saturday 11th August." 

Sports Producer, Stuart Dick (centre) will also be using the commentary equipment for exclusive coverage of every Home Game at Newcastle United Womens Football Club on www.radionorthumberland.com. He said "After the success of NUWFC last season, we can't wait for the first home match against Wolverhampton Wanderers WFC".
