Wycombe Sound gets full-time deal
A NOT-for-profit radio station has won a license to broadcast full-time for the next five years.
Communications regulator Ofcom has granted Wycombe Sound, a radio station for High Wycombe, the licence following the completion of three successful broadcasts.
Managing director Chris Phillips said: “We’re all absolutely delighted. After completing three successful pop-up broadcasts we’re looking forward to putting the service onto a permanent footing. There’s so much going on in this town, we want to share all the good news coming from our community.”
Programme director and presenter Philippa Sawyer says: “It’s fantastic news – now we can put our plans into action. We’ve come a long way since 2013 and we’ve been overwhelmed with the support from listeners.
“We have more than 70 volunteer broadcasters, technicians and reporters from all walks of life, and we welcome new members to the team. There are lots of opportunities to get involved, both in front of and behind the mic.”
