East London Radio

Description

We are a not-for-profit Community Interest Company, providing radio training to our local community and producing radio programmes for broadcast through our website.

We base ourselves in accessible unused rooms, often inside community buildings, across East London, within easy access of as much of the community as possible.

Our studios are built, where possible, from recycled/reused equipment and materials. Our first studio includes wood from the former Olympic site.

ELR is delighted to work with and promote individuals, community groups and charities from our area. We are keen to promote a positive image of this area which since 2012 has been more under the spotlight and is going through massive change.

We welcome volunteers of all ages and backgrounds, and offer training to build a passion into a radio programme. Such as - like gardening? - how could that become a gardening programme?

As we expand, we will need more small premises for studios, to ensure we improve our reach across the boroughs of Newham, Tower Hamlets, Hackney, Waltham Forest, Redbridge, Barking & Dagenham and Havering.

Our mission is to become a reliable local news source, giving East Londoners a voice and sense of being part of an amazing area.
