Radio services vital during COVID-19

Community radio station FUSE FM, based from the bottom of Main Street in Ballymoney, have not let the COVID-19 crisis halt their broadcast.

Approaching five years running the full time community station this July, the service is well established in the local area.

They are not alone however as Radio stations and their presenters are recognised as essential services & key workers.

Services have had to change and the way radio programming in general is put together has adapted to meet the needs for local listeners in the community.

What’s obvious is that stations, both community and commercial, have been a vital resource for the communities they serve in providing not only the latest information on the virus, but more importantly a way to escape into the world of music and chat with a familiar voice.

The lastest set of RAJAR figures certainly confirm this for commercial and regional broadcasters, as most have experienced increases.
