Radio Peterborough has recently completed another successful broadcast, this time from our brand new studios at the Herlington Centre in Peterborough.
The station is led by local radio entrepreneur Cllr Wayne Fitzgerald former managing director of Lite FM . The eventual aim of the station is to re establish Local Commercial Radio in Peterborough as it has now been abandoned by all other commercial and BBC local broadcasters. Cllr Fitzgerald recently met with the Minister for Culture, Media and Sport to press the case for another radio license to be made available for Peterborough.
Radio Peterborough is a “not for profit” enterprise, and everyone who works for the station does so on a voluntary basis. Many of the City’s most respected and best known local radio broadcasters – Dave King, Robert Jones, Keith Dalton and Stewart Francis are on the airwaves to support the project. In addition many new voices trained by the station can also be heard presenting a whole range of programmes during the evenings and at weekends. Radio Peterborough is always looking for volunteers to work both on air and behind the scenes – everyone is welcome to participate in this truly local community project.
In a unique tie up, Radio Peterborough’s local news broadcast is supplied by The Peterborough Telegraph Newspaper, ensuring all listeners will be keep well and truly up to date. Our music policy is based on the best songs of today and yesterday – a vibrant, feel good sound that everyone can enjoy.
The station is fortunate to have the support of Peterborough City Council and Cross Keys Homes who have enabled the Herlington Centre premises to be developed as not only a radio studio but as a Media and Arts Drop In Centre for the use of the whole community. Radio Peterborough will also be operating a Radio Academy from the premises to enable local people to be taught radio skills.
