Insanity Radio, Royal Holloway, University of London’s student-run radio station is to go 24/7 from early 2012, it will be broadcasting under a new Community FM licence on the frequency 103.2FM.
The stations battle to secure the license has proved a long one, but the hard work put in by successive volunteers during the past five years has finally paid off with the confirmation of the FM frequency from Ofcom earlier this month.
Having made its debut as Royal Holloway’s Radio Society in 1997, Insanity Radio began broadcasting in 1998 under Restricted Service Licences (which last just 28 days) twice a year. Insanity Radio has evolved over the years to become 24-hour broadcasting station boasting 16-hours of live content every day, a full-time AM frequency of 1287AM, more than 200 active volunteers and a loyal listenership. The move to Community FM means more opportunities for the local community to get involved with new youth projects being initiated to coincide with the re-launch. Local schools and youth groups can get involved and experience real-life radio training by assisting with many aspects of programming, production and music playlisting.
Insanity Radio earlier this month, won the Gold Award for ‘Best Technical Achievement’ at the Student Radio Awards.
