Moorlands Radio started broadcasting full time on November 7th 2009 at 10:03:07 by Tony Mullins and Mervyn Gamage.
In 2019 Moorlands Radio has expanded and is still going strong thanks to the hours of dedication put in by the volunteers who run the station. Moorlands radio is still helping give the community a voice in the Staffordshire Moorlands whilst providing entertainment and local news to the community it represents.
To celebrate the 10th anniversary Moorlands radio invited local councillors, Community groups and friends of the station to a coffee morning to celebrate this milestone.
The event allowed community groups that Moorlands radio supports meet local councillors and allowed a great networking event for all parties.
Moorlands Radio also announced that the FM license which allows moorlands radio to broadcast on 103.7fm to the Staffordshire Moorlands had been renewed by Ofcom meaning the station has permission to broadcast on FM for another 5 years.
Moorlands radio is proud to help give community groups in the moorlands a voice and help them showcase the amazing work that they carry out.
