Welcome to the website
102.4 Radio Hartlepool won a full-time licence to broadcast to the town back in 2008. Since then we have entertained the listeners with a mix of chat, local news and some great music with an air of professionalism that matches the 'big name' radio stations.
We use a team of dedicated volunteers to maintain our on-air output and there are always a variety of different personalities used. Many people come to the station having had no training and we carefully guide them to find 'their voice' and make sure they are ready and confident before putting them on-air.
Radio Hartlepool has helped raise thousands of pounds for charity by giving valuable on-air promotion to several charities and local community groups over the last six years and we continue to do so.
We truly are at the heart of the community with our studios in the centre of Hartlepool, amongst a bustling population. With our open-plan view onto York Road, its good to watch the world go by as we bring you more local shows.
We are YOUR local station
102.4 Radio Hartlepool won a full time licence back in August 2008.
It wasn't an easy process to get a radio station for the town as a number of test broadcasts have to be performed in order to prove that the organisation is capable of running a station.
Eventually we were chosen to be the town's only radio station and we launched at 12 noon on 17th August 2008.
The town of Hartlepool needed a truly local station, especially with another 'local' station merging with its sister station and moving to Newcastle.
We have given hundreds of hours of airtime to local charities and 'not for profit' organsiations in order to promote themselves. These include Macmillan Cancer Support, Hartlepool Carers, Hartlepool Hospice, Music Vs Cancer, Raindrops To Raindrops, British Heart Foundation - to name just a few.
We have also helped many local musicians, both by promoting their releases but also giving them vital airtime, and many have played live in our studios.
Radio Hartlepool were the first FM station to playlist The Jar Family, a collective of local musicians who have since been featured on national stations.
Our unsigned local music show, 'Born North' has played hundreds of bands and singers from across the region.
We have given away prizes to the value of thousands of pounds since our launch from cupcakes and store vouchers and gig tickets to televisions and holidays!
Most of all Radio Hartlepool is here for the people of the town.
