Best Local Commercial Radio Station - East Midlands
Erewash Sound is a non-profit making community interest company. It launched full time for the Derbyshire borough of Erewash, from studios in Cotmanhay in March 2010, opened by local actor Robert Lindsay.
A genuinely local radio station, run by and for local people, backed by a board of experienced non-executive directors, advertising revenue – plus other income – is used almost exclusively to cover running costs and develop the station further.
It also now incorporates an NCFE accredited training academy.
Output features ‘great songs JUST for Erewash’, local news, sport, weather, what’s on and free publicity for non-profit making organisations.
