This year was our 13th annual Gifts For Christmas appeal.
We weren't expecting the usual level of donations with 2020 being a challenging time for a lot of our listeners.
However we were astounded at how everyone has pulled together and helped.
This means children in Hartlepool will have something to open this Christmas.
A massive THANK YOU to everyone who managed to donate.
Gifts For Christmas 2020
It's all change!
We've got brand new look for here on your local station.
Sundays see the addition of Sarah Armstrong (Sunday Breakfast 7-10am), along with Mille Jenkins with The Indie Show (9-10pm)
and also a couple of changes with Dan Walton moving to Solid Gold Sunday (2-6pm)
and Andy Brown/Colm Simpson taking over the Sunday Evening Show (7-9pm).
Meanwhile on weekdays Michelle Moorhead is taking control of the Big Drive Home (weekdays 4-6pm)
and we've got the Hartlepool answer to Ant and Dec, Willa and Margaret on The Evening Show (Mon-Thurs 7-10pm)
Lee Theasby, Operations Manager at Radio Hartlepool is pleased to welcome the new additions and changes.
"I was originally hoping to get the new schedule underway around two months ago, however I decided to hold off for a while with the world changing events. I am pleased to announce a few new presenters to the station, Sarah has had extensive experience in local radio over the years, Mille is keen to progress in radio, Willa and Margaret are a really good pairing and it's also welcome back to the mic for Andy who will be joined by Colm. Dan is staying with us in a new slot after four years with the station. I hope our listeners enjoy our refresh of the station".
