ABOUT THE STATION
Somer Valley FM integrates education and business in a professional media setting. Serviced by over 200 volunteers we deliver popular local radio with a powerful social agenda. As the only community organisation of its kind in North East Somerset the station has a strong regional as well as local presence. Funded by a mix of public, private and charitable sectors Somer Valley FM is commissioned to deliver services on educational and employability platforms. With an established audience that is building we provide a unique setting for individuals and groups to get their voice heard. That audience is also attracting growing interest from local businesses in using radio to raise awareness of their products and services. Somer Valley FM is a commercially orientated community radio station.
The welfare of people and providing an environment in which they can thrive to the best of their potential and aspirations is at the heart of what Somer Valley FM is all about. Having fun whilst building skills underlies the potency of this contemporary and ambitious model of community broadcasting.
From the Station Manager…
“My job is to make sure we have a place where everyone can achieve whatever it was that brought them to us in the first place. The glue that holds it all together is the laughter and fun we have. From that comes a lot of hard work and skill development. Come and see for yourself how it all works. At Somer Valley FM we welcome anyone interested in our model of community broadcasting through the doors. So pick up the phone and I’ll put the kettle on.”
