Cannock Chase Radio FM Is Here

Press Release November 2017 – Cannock Chase Radio
( For general circulation and publishing )

The Directors of Cannock Chase Radio are proud to announce the arrival of FM Radio for Cannock Chase, Rugeley and The Trent Valley.  

The journey started 3 years ago as a vision by local married couple Rob and Jane Hughes, they had a passion for radio and had worked together at previous radio stations in the surrounding areas.  Their vision became a reality on 15th November 2014 and ‘Cannock Radio’ as it was then was born.  After a successful launch in Cannock town centre the station went from strength to strength. Popularity created momentum for the station and it wasn’t only the listening audience that started to grow.

Many new presenters were added to the team and in 2016 we had to look for larger studios.  The move to our current studios located in Bridgtown, Cannock happened along with a name change to ‘Cannock Chase Radio’. We now have 2 fully active studios capable of hosting training sessions, interviews and live radio shows.  Ongoing investment and the introduction of even more presenters led to an expanding broadcast schedule which has meant that we can offer a wide and attractive plethora of entertainment that suits an even wider audience across the Cannock Chase and surrounding areas.

By 2016 the radio station had gained considerable local fame and recognition.  With an additional director joining the management team the stage was set for even more success.  Tenacity, blood, sweat and tears then ensued and after another successful year all the hard work and dedication payed off.  Our Ofcom FM licence was granted in November 2017 and FM radio is coming to Cannock Chase, Rugeley and the Trent Valley.  We would especially like to recognise our very dedicated team of presenters as well  our sponsors and advertisers that have helped us along this incredible journey.

The future is bright, The future is Cannock Chase Radio FM coming in 2018.
