The South Northumberland Radio Group (SNRG
) hopes to cover the south east of the county and urban areas around Morpeth.
The South Northumberland Radio Group (SNRG) is confident of taking to the airwaves for the first time in the spring after applying for its initial 28-day broadcasting licence.
SNRG chairman Colin Heathcote said: "We've got much to get through as we plan for the broadcast and we want to hear people's programme ideas."
SNRG is holding a meeting for station volunteers from 6.30pm on Monday February 6 at the studio.
Building work has now started on creating a broadcasting studio base for the South East Northumberland Radio Group (SNRG) in Bedlington.
The work will convert a former gas showroom into a professional grade studio to allow SNRG to start broadcasting in the next few months.
The firm heard that SNRG had been awarded pounds 3,000 funding from the Bernicia housing association and agreed to match the sum by providing labour and materials for the work.
