Local Radio Day

John Whittingdale MP - Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport



Local Radio Day (27th May) celebrates the partnership that exists between radio stations and their listeners and sets out to demonstrate the difference that local really makes.

Local Radio can help local businesses prosper and thrive, making a real impact on the economy of the areas where it still exists and it can provide skills and training to local people.
