About Us

Moorlands Radio is a community radio station based in Leek in the Staffordshire Moorlands, England.

We were granted a full-time FM broadcasting licence in the second round of community radio licensing by broadcast regulator Ofcom in February 2008.

The station is now on air serving the rural Staffordshire Moorlands and covering the main towns of Leek, Biddulph, and surrounding villages.

We broadcast on 97.3FM and 103.7FM across the Moorlands, online via our website and the free Moorlands Radio app designed by our team in house. You can also listen to Moorlands Radio via TuneIn and your smart speaker. For full details on how to listen, click here.

Moorlands Radio broadcasts 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and has a mix of music and speech featuring the very best presenters and local people.

We broadcast local and national news, local sport, local weather, showbiz news, business news and we look at international news from a Moorlands perspective.

At night we broadcast a range of specialist music from rock to jazz and much more, and our programmes feature the biggest pop hits from the last 40 years along with the very best music from local musicians.
