East coast Radio (ECR) is an online Community Radio Station who are applying for an FM licence for Grimsby, Mablethorpe, Trusthorpe, Sutton-on-sea, Chapel St. Leonards, Ingoldmells and Skegness.
We are part of Radwave Ltd., which is a non-profit making CIC (Community Interest Company). Any profits made after expenses, will be allocated to community groups and charities of our choice.
ECR is committed to supporting the health and well-being of our communities and individuals, regardless of age or circumstance.
Our core purpose is to provide uplifting music, chat, information and national and local news. Content of the programmes are at the influence and request of you, the listener. We work with local groups and charities as well as local authorities and councils and give them a platform from which to reach a wider audience.
We are staffed by a cross-section of people from our community who give their time on a voluntary basis and they represent the values and views of the community. There are many roles within East Coast Radio and we hope that through volunteering with us, people will gain experience, knowledge and confidence
We also offer a structured, individualised programme of work experience in the areas of presentation, production and journalism. We have close connections with the crime reduction team and local colleges and anyone over the age of 16 would be considered to gain work experience with us. However, we are a relatively small organisation and demand is high. We will endeavour to do our best to accommodate all applicants".
