Frisk Radio getting ready to launch from Northumberland
A new radio station playing Dance and R&B is preparing to launch on small-scale DAB multiplexes in the northeast.
Frisk Radio will feature former Galaxy presenter Nick Jordan on breakfast, with shows from Judge Jules, Roger Sanchez, Paul Oakenfold, Paul van Dyk and Tiesto filling the rest of the schedule.
Dave Kelly will warm-up Saturday nights with his syndicated Hitmix programme of chart anthems.
Owners Stuart Landreth and Mick Winter have been trialling the station’s format through its smartphone app. They tell RadioToday: “The North East loves to party and as we rise out of lockdown, we’re going to help uplift the mood of the region with a banging music format that runs 24/7!
“There is an immense amount of talent in the area, and we’ve assembled a hardworking team of DJs, presenters and production staff who can’t wait to get the ball rolling.”
Frisk Radio will launch on the Tynemouth & South Shields small-scale DAB multiplex this autumn, and on the Newcastle & Gateshead small-scale multiplex soon after.
