Frisk was born in 2018 as an internet radio station. running entirely in the cloud. Over the past 3 years, we've developed a lively upbeat music format throughout the day, peppered with specialist dance shows at the weekend.
As heritage radio stations are networked, downsized and moved to Manchester & London, we spotted a niche to entertain the real, hard-working families of the North East with a mix of upbeat dance music and local banter.
After all our hard work, we have now been granted a licence to broadcast on 2 new small scale DAB (SS-DAB) transmitters in the North East. Once both transmitters are online, Frisk Radio's DAB coverage area will be Newcastle, Gateshead, Tynemouth and South Shields.
In addition, we will continue to reach a further audience across the UK and around the world through our smartphone app and website.
The money raised will help fund our DAB start-up costs which include a modern on-air & preparation studio, a multi-channel marketing programme, and a training scheme to involve and engage members of the community.
