As a radio station aimed at our local community we shall be aiming all our news gathering at local issues rather than national. (the BBC, ITV and Sky have the budget do it slightly better than us!)

So the emphasis will be on local news from the towns and villages within our concentrated broadcast area. The same will apply to What’s On coverage to encourage and support local community events throughout our area.

We also hope that with the obvious global coverage through the world wide web, our station, can provide a link to home for the many people from our area that have emigrated abroad.

Thanks to the assistance of two of our local colleges and Universities, Yeovil College and Bournemouth University, we have enlisted the help of two young students to handle our news gathering and help to provide them with the first breakthrough into radio broadcasting and presenting.

We hope to have an twice daily news bulletins of local news starting in the third week of October.
