Cheshire FM Launched in UK
Cheshire’s community radio station, Cheshire FM, took to the airwaves at 8 am on Friday 30 March with The Full Cheshire Breakfast. The station, set up by Wire FM founders David Duffy and Phil Houltby, with the support of local organisations including Business After Hours, DeBees, DAN and Cheshire Youth Services and was one of the last to be licensed by Ofcom in the first round of community radio awards.
Cheshire FM broadcasts from the Verdin Exchange small business centre in the town of Winsford and serves the neighbouring communities of Northwich and Middlewich with popular music and professionally-produced programming, including local news and sport coverage. The area has been traditionally under-served by existing commercial and BBC stations.
The transmitting frequency is 92.5 MHz and the transmitting power is 25 w.
