We're proud to be bidding for the Digital Radio licence on our beloved Isle Of Wight...


A new collaborative community interest company, Wight Digital Radio CIC has announced its
intention to bid for the new DAB radio multiplex licence covering the Isle of Wight.

The licence

Isle of Wight Radio is part of the Total Sense Media Group and enjoys a monthly audience of 60,000 listeners* and has been broadcasting to the Island for nearly 34 years. Vectis Radio, an Ofcom licenced community radio station launched as an online-only station on 23rd January 2010 and began broadcasting on FM on 4th November 2017.
