Local community radio celebrates first anniversary – Newcastle Magazine


Local online community radio station Radio Gateshead celebrates its first anniversary.

Radio Gateshead, which broadcasts live 24 hours a day online, provides local news, community information and great music.

The station launched on June 5, 2021 and has been incredibly popular, helping thousands of local residents during Storm Eunice and Storm Arwen with the latest weather and travel information – live and via its website.

As well as providing information to the community, Radio Gateshead prides itself on speaking to local people, by local people. Everyone involved in the radio station is a volunteer and they all have one thing in common: a passion for local community radio.

Radio Gateshead said: “We are incredibly proud to celebrate our first anniversary. We launched just after the pandemic when we realized there was no radio station that only catered to Gateshead.

“We have had great support from local businesses and are inviting them to sponsor our website to help with running costs.”

“Our presenters, feature writers and those behind the scenes are working extremely hard to build a service that works 24/7. We just hope we can grow from here and we are always looking for volunteers to help us with all aspects of the station”.
