New radio station for South Bucks set to launch this weekend

A brand new digital radio station for South Buckinghamshire is set to launch on Saturday morning at 10am playing a range of music from the 90s, 00s and Now.

The Beat will broadcast all the latest local news, travel and What’s On information for South Buckinghamshire as well as playing all the hits with some fantastic presenters.

The station will be available on DAB Digital Radio, as well as broadcasting online and on mobile devices.

Many familiar names will be joining the station from launch, with ex-Heart and BRMB presenter Mikey Faulkner set to host Breakfast and former Capital FM DJ Chris Brooks hosting Daytimes.

The station will pride itself in ‘Playing All The Hits’ with as many songs per hour as possible. At the weekend, Pat Sharp will be joining the station for All The Hits on Saturday afternoons with Mikey Faulkner counting down the top 40 on The Beat Chart each Sunday afternoon.

The Beat will also have some fantastic competitions from launch, including the chance for listeners to win tickets to see Little Mix in Norwich and Majority Technology DAB Digital Radios.

Darren Dorrington, Managing Director at The Beat said: “We’re really excited to be launching a new radio station for South Buckinghamshire. With so many local events going on around here over the next few months, it’s going to be really exciting to launch a brand new local radio station and we hope everyone in South Buckinghamshire will switch us on from Saturday.”
