Starting Out

When you are new to community radio, the idea of running a full-time, licensed station with its own premises, paid staff, hundreds of volunteers and a financial turnover of up to six figures will seem like an impossible dream. The success of pilot stations across the community radio sector prove that it can be done. Indeed the chances are that a station like the one you dream of has already has been created by someone very like you.

It doesn’t need huge sums of money to get started. If you are good at what you do, you can find the money to do it and make that money work for you. In this section we will talk you through the processes involved in establishing a community radio station, pretty much from scratch.
