Radio Shields NE is a local radio station based in South Shields, Tyne and Wear, a not for profit company established with the aim of engaging the community in the medium of radio through training and experience.

We provide experience and training in broadcast and media skills, promoting education, pathways to employment opportunities and inter-personal skills such as confidence, team building and motivational skills.

We work with people from the community including the unemployed, lone parents, disabled, faith groups, vulnerable adults, schools, local businesses and start up companies, charities and social interest groups.

We have a comprehensive training package which teaches all aspects of radio such as producing, editing, presenting and technical.

As a community business, we rely solely on the support of volunteers to keep the station live and active, and are constantly looking for people to join us in all aspects of radio. As well as “on air” there are also many other areas to get involved with including marketing, live events, technical and general administration.

If you would like to get involved with us or find out more, then drop us an email or give us a call and you can speak to our Operations Manager George Heron on operations@radioshields.co.uk or telephone us on 0191 435 6310
