Great Driffield Radio is delighted to announce that OFCOM, the agency that supervises radio and television licences in the UK, has awarded us a five year licence to launch a local radio station broadcasting to Great Driffield and the surrounding communities in the East Riding of Yorkshire.

Listeners to Great Driffield Radio can expect a great mix of well known songs, local information and chat and will give everyone who lives, works or plays in the area an opportunity to promote what they do and share their views on local issues.

Chairman of Great Driffield Radio, Barry Robinson says: “It’s marvellous news! The whole team are dedicated to bringing truly local radio that will appeal to everyone in the Great Driffield area. We can’t wait to get started!”

OFCOM have stated: “Great Driffield Radio will broadcast to the population of the parish of Great Driffield and surrounding village communities in the East Riding of Yorkshire. The directors bring a range of experience, particularly in community radio broadcasting and management, and Ofcom considered that the applicant had demonstrated its ability to maintain the service. The proposed service will cater for the tastes and interests of local people with a locally focused service and broaden the range of programmes available in the area. Ofcom considered that its proposals to encourage involvement in the station via small working groups, as well as regular surveys and open meetings to invite direct feedback, will help ensure accountability to the target community.”

More details about the launch of Great Driffield Radio will be released soon.
