Future Radio is the community radio station for Norwich. Future radio is part of Future Projects and was one of the first community stations in the country to be awarded a five year full time community broadcast license in 2005. After a number of short-term trial licenses, Future Radio began broadcasting on a full time basis in August 2007.
Future Radio is one of the largest and longest running community radio stations in the UK, managed by a small team of dedicated staff and operated by over 100 members of the community, who create shows alongside providing background production and journalism support.
Future Radio offers volunteers the unique opportunity to develop new skills by getting involved in radio presentation and production. Despite already having incredible input from members of the Norwich community, we are always looking for more people to get involved with Future Radio, so if being involved in operating a radio station, in whichever capacity you choose, is something that would be of interest to you, please fill out a form on the Get Involved tab.
Mission: To provide a diverse, accessible, and engaging community radio service which educates and supports the local and wider community, provides high quality output and promotes community development and cohesion.
Vision: Our vision is that of a community which has equality of opportunity and the education, skills and confidence to overcome its social or economic disadvantages and contribute fully to society.
In 2018 RadioActive worked with Transplan UK engineers Phil and Lee to move Future Radio’s main studios from one site to their new site at Open in the centre of Norwich. The new studios included two Sonifex S2 mixers, live satellite news feeds and a host of other features to keep Future Radio studios at the forefront of UK community radio.
The move went without a hitch and the station was able to move to its new premises without going off the air for a second. We wish Future Radio many more years of broadcasting success at the heart of the Norwich community.
“Max from RadioActive quickly met with us to discuss our requirements. We were very impressed with the end result, and even more impressed with the amount of hours he put in to meet the extremely tight deadline. Many thanks from all at Future Radio.” – Michael Gedge, Technical Director, Future Radio.
