Statement: An update on Moorlands Radio

Moorlands Radio, a Community Radio station serving the Staffordshire Moorlands, is currently run by a team of volunteers with the exception of our Weekday Daytime presenters who we currently pay a show fee.

As with many businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic, we had to review our financial situation in order to protect the longevity and viability of the radio station.

We have therefore reluctantly had to make the difficult decision to suspend the show fee that we are currently paying our Daytime presenters. This will come into effect as of 1st January 2021.

The radio station will continue to broadcast 24hrs a day on 103.7FM and online at www.moorlandsradio.co.uk and will continue to bring you the best programs and the latest Local News. Our online sister station Moorlands Gold will also continue to broadcast as normal.

We would like to place on record our thanks to all our volunteers and those presenters who received show fees, for their incredible support and dedication over the years, and most recently during what has been a difficult year for many.
