The Bay Team recently took part in LOCAL RADIO DAY What's it all about? here's an extract from the guys at Local Radio Day
"We believe local radio is more important than many radio companies do. We believe when it is done properly, with the right funding, the right people and the right motives it can help change the lives of listeners and make a real and lasting impact to the area that it serves.
It can help local businesses prosper and thrive, making a real impact on the economy of the areas where it still exists and it can provide skills and training to local people.
We want to make the case for local radio because we feel it can, sometimes, be taken for granted.
Local Radio Day celebrates the partnership that exists between radio stations and their listeners and sets out to demonstrate the difference that local really makes"
