Get involved with Local Radio Day at Norton Hill

By Leah Smith in Education

Local Radio Day is an event set up by UKRD group and involves radio stations nationwide. The idea behind the event is to allow a break in the stations’ normal programming and dedicate a day to everything local, whether that be updating listeners with local news, sport and weather or going out and about in the community. This year, Norton Hill Radio, alongside many other stations, will be participating in this event.

Norton Hill Radio want to embrace everything local, what with us being a station run by members of the school, for members of the school. The rough plan is to get departments involved and creating their content, which will be given air time in the regular Norton Hill Radio shows.

On the day, all the station’s automated programming will be turned off and presenters manually operating the station all day. Instead of the national news, we will have live and local news, weather and sport at more frequent intervals.

This day isn’t just limited to those already members of Norton Hill Radio – we want everyone to be involved. So, if you think you could offer something to Local Radio Day (and the future of Norton Hill Radio), please do get in touch.

We would like to encourage everyone to get involved by listening on the day and sending in any messages and requests.

As the day approaches, we will be adding more information at: www.norton hillradio.com/localradioday

To listen on the day, we would encourage you to use the website and mobile/tablet application (available from your app store) or by using the official Local Radio Day website and mobile/tablet application.
