We did it

We have been serving Barry and parts of the Vale for the past 6 years and now we are looking to expand our FM service in the area.

Bro Radio has been serving Barry and parts of the surrounding areas for the last 6 years and up until this point we have been unable to reach certain other parts in the area. We are now however pleased to say that we are in the process of solving this with an application being processed by OFCOM to move our transmitter, which should lead to improvements in coverage

About the project

Bro Radio is a community radio station which has been serving the area since 2009. As a station we currently cover Barry, Wales largest town, however now in our 6th year we are looking to expand our coverage so that we are able to cover the those areas that we don't at the moment.

Over our time on air we have seen a major need for our service within areas of the Vale of Glamorgan and through research we have discovered that we will be able to do this, by relocating our transmitter to a more prominent location in Barry which should drastically improve our FM coverage both in the area we already cover but also allowing us to stretch further across other areas.

As well as offering a vital radio service for listeners, the transmitter will have major benefits for the area by allowing us to expand the opportunities we can provide to the community. Currently the organisation is run by a team of 40 active volunteers and by expanding our coverage area we hope to be able to increase the participation and involvement of the wider community by offering more volunteering and training opportunities at the stations industry standard studios.

After 6 years on air, we now see this as vital in securing our long term future and hope you will join us on this journey.

How you can help

We are seeking your support as without it we will not be able to make this happen. Donation via our Crowd Funder page can be as big or as small as you wish, with each supporter recieving recognition. 

We really hope that you can see the potential impact this move could have, whether you are an exsisting, future listener or advertiser of the station. We hope that you will continue to support the station and its growth, and that you will share this with your friends, family or other businesses to make sure that we can continue to do what we do for the community.

Thank you for you support!
