The Mayor of Warrington, Faisal Rashid, will be helping Warrington’s community radio station celebrate hitting the borough’s airwaves at an official re-launch party at the Town Hall on Wednesday 20 July, at 5pm.
The radio station is celebrating broadcasting on 1332 AM/MW medium wave after being an online-only radio station for the past nine years.
And residents from across the borough will now have the chance to quiz the Mayor about his role, and his plans and aspirations for the town as he starts his own regular slot – a Mayor’s Question Time. The first one will be on Thursday, 21 July, at 6pm.
Councillor Rashid said: “It is great news for the radio station to finally get its medium wave broadcasting sorted out. It is an important sounding board for the people of Warrington, it is their community station, available to all regardless of age, experience or abilities.
“Residents should remember if they have an event to publicise, opinions on what is happening in the town or national events which may affect Warrington they can now broadcast their say on Radio Warrington.”
The community radio station has been broadcasting Warrington’s news and views for 24 hours a day on the internet since March 2007 and is run and staffed by volunteers.
