Uckfield FM has been on the air full time since July 2010. Having been a radio station on air for the towns festival in July since 2003, the group which is run almost all by volunteers was awarded a full time community radio licence for the Uckfield area in 2009.
The station broadcasts on 105FM to a six mile radius of our base at Bird in Eye Farm in Uckfield and is also available online at uckfieldfm.co.uk
Our presenters range from 18 to 70 years old and their shows encompass a diverse blend of music. By daytime, we play the greatest hits from the last 50 years and by evening we have specialist music programmes including Northern Soul, Country, Motown, Jazz and Local Music
Although the station doesn’t broadcast into Crowborough, you can receive it online and also in the villages to the south of the town.
The station has to raise its funding from various sources and not just through advertising or sponsorship. We have to raise money through quiz nights and also receive local and national grants.
Uckfield FM offers local businesses a cost effective medium to advertise their products and services. Your business can have a professional 30 second commercial created from just £70+VAT and then you can have it played on the station from as little as £10+VAT per week. We take you through every step to get your business on the radio with little fuss.
