The Cat Community Radio Station are proud and excited to announce that we have been successful in our application for an FM license. Ofcom have today confirmed The Cat’s bid a success, allowing the station to broadcast on FM for a length of five years.
The Crewe and Nantwich Community Radio Station have broadcast via various media for 20 years, forming as ‘The Cat’ in January 2008. During this time, The Cat has built strong links with the local community through training opportunities, offering cost effective advertising and providing a large selection of music and speech broadcasting. The Cat is looking forward to strengthening links with the local community, as the FM broadcast takes shape.
Chairman Chris Radford said: “I am absolutely delighted with OfCom's announcement today. Our FM licence will allow The Cat to reach a far wider audience, whilst continuing to serve and entertain our local community and beyond”
Paul Simpson, member of the station for 20 years, said: “This has been a long wait, not just for the community of Crewe and Nantwich, but for all of the dedicated volunteers that have worked on community radio in the area over the last 21 years. We have an amazing history in our area from Youth FM, YFM Witch Fm to The Cat. It has been a long wait so a big Thank You to all of the volunteers and the community that have, and continue to support us. After all, it’s Your Station for Your Community!”
Further details regarding a launch date will be issued shortly. If you want to get involved as a volunteer for The Cat Community Radio Station, we welcome your support by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org
