About The HitMix
At 10 am on Saturday 28th November 2015, something very special happened in the Borough of Newcastle-under-Lyme!
Hitmix Radio was launched, broadcasting across the Borough on 107.5 fm. A brand new community radio station, strong on local issues and news combined with an eclectic mix of music to suit all tastes, genres and ages.
Our desire to strive for a community radio station for the Borough started back in 2010, when Robbie Benson and Paul Moore realised that the 24 wards of Newcastle-under-Lyme were under served by the established stations in the area.
We decided to carry out a 28 day restricted service licence, which took place in August 2012. The response from the RSL was even better than anticipated, with support from local small businesses and an amazing 6000 contacts from members of the public. So much was achieved in just one month!
We knew then that we had to go ahead with our plans for a local community radio station for the people of Newcastle-under-Lyme! Our Borough deserves its own radio station!
Since being awarded our full time licence on 2nd October 2014, a team of volunteers has been working very hard! A purpose built media complex has been commissioned, including two state of the art studios, plus an office and reception area to welcome our visitors, all built to accommodate wheelchair users.
We decided to start as we mean to go on - a great studio complex, equipped with only the best equipment to help us provide the best service possible to the people of Newcastle-under-Lyme. We are all very proud of our studios!
Since Hitmix Radio’s long awaited launch in November 2015, we have been overwhelmed by the response from the people of Newcastle-under-Lyme and the surrounding areas. We would like to thank you all for your support!
Our musical policy ‘more variety, more of the time’, combined with local news, weather, traffic and travel, sport, interviews and specialist shows ensure that we provide something for everyone! Our mission is to unite our Borough by providing affordable advertising for local small businesses, free advertising and support for charities and not for profit groups, and an accessible and entertaining radio station for our community.
The whole Hitmix team are dedicated to providing the best radio station possible to serve the people of Newcastle-under-Lyme!
