Local Radio Day

Local Radio Day, Friday 25th May 2018.

Local Radio Day, which is now in its third year, has firmly established itself as a platform for “proper” local radio stations from across all parts of the sector to come together and celebrate local radio itself and the engagement it has with the people, communities and areas it broadcasts to.

“Almost 80 proper local radio stations participated in Local Radio Day last year, with representation from BBC, community, commercial and charitable radio stations - a marked increase in the number of radio stations that participated in the inaugural 2016 event,” said William Rogers, UKRD’s Chief Executive. He also confirmed that all UKRD local radio stations would be participating in Local Radio Day 2018.

Details of those radio stations participating in Local Radio Day will be publicised at www.localradioday.co.uk. Logos, a free production package and additional assistance will be provided by the Local Radio Day team who won ‘Team of the Year’ at the ARIAS last year.

“Proper local radio is special and its ability to connect, reflect and be at the centre of the community it serves is unrivalled. Therefore, it’s only appropriate that those working in, and those that listen to, proper local radio are the given the opportunity to share in and celebrate their passion for it and the areas it broadcasts to,” said Dave Coull, UKRD’s Group Content Director.

“If you’d like to participate in Local Radio Day on Friday 25th May 2018 all you need do is email dave.coull@ukrd.com or click on the ‘contact’ tab at www.localradioday.co.uk and either myself or a member of the team will get back to you,” Coull added.
