Local Radio for West Cornwall
Penwith Radio has evolved with the help of Penwith Older People’s forum, youth groups and with the assistance of Penwith District Council before unitary authority status was attained by Cornwall Council.
It is a social company with a board of directors presently led by Alan Shepherd as chair of the board of directors.
The station is supported by a team of volunteers who have trained in a wide range of media skills including presenting, editing, recording, office management, technical development, programme making and journalism.
There is a wide range of output covering community issues, arts and specialist music programmes.
The station is committed to all aspects of social inclusion and environmental sustainability. The community radio aims to encourage the personal development of volunteers and to respond to the concerns of people in the Penwith area.
Originally internet-based with a world-wide coverage, Penwith Radio was awarded an Ofcom licence for FM coverage and now broadcasts on 96.5 and 97.2 FM.
