UK NEWS: “I HAVE A CHOICE” LAUNCHES REACH FM

Run by 90 volunteers, Reach FM has been created by v, The National Young Volunteers Service and Choice FM’s community project “I Have a Choice” to inspire, inform and involve thousands of 16-25 year olds. The station will broadcast from 8th-28th May and focus on some of the things that are important to young people – fashion, music, family and community.

Over the last few months the vinspired and Catch22 volunteers have been gaining experience in radio production, editing, presenting, marketing and promotions. On Saturday 8th May their months of hard work and preparation culminated with the launch of Reach FM on 87.7 FM.

Alongside this Global Radio’s Choice FM has teamed up with Arsenal and Tottenham football clubs to highlight the huge importance of communities and young people coming together. Over the last few years there has been a rise in knife crime among young people, tragically highlighted by the death of Ben Kinsella in Islington in 2008.  Hence the main theme for the 21-day broadcast is community cohesion; encouraging young people to work together across boroughs.
