Summer of '17
Yes we know it doesn't quite have the same catchiness as a certain Bryan Adams song but we are very proud to announce a number of new presenters joining your local station this summer.
Firstly Stu Leighton returns to Radio Hartlepool to present 'The Afternoon Show' and 'Big Drive Home' every weekday.
Our 'Sunday Breakfast Show' has a new name to radio, Kenny Layton. Kenny has guest presented with Jason a number of times and we have gave him his own show.
Last but certainly not least, Mike Thompson is joining the team to present a number of one-off specials, starting this August Bank Holiday.
If you would like to join the Radio Hartlepool crew as a volunter, please download the application pack from the front page of this site.
Remembering the victims of Manchester
On Monday 22nd May 2017, Ariana Grande played what was expected to be another gig at Manchester Arena.
Many people from around the country, including Hartlepool, travelled to the city to see the popular singer.
Louise and Emily Anderson (pictured below) were in the Arena when the explosion happened.
Thankfully they were not injured but Lee Theasby spoke to Louise about their experiences during the terrifying attack.

We've had a bit of a spring clean at your local station and have made a few changes to the schedule.
Graeme Blakey (below) joins us to help us 'Relax' at 10pm every Monday to Thursday. Graeme is a former taxi driver who lovesthe medium of radio and he is excited to play you some great songs to help you chill out.
Meanwhile we've got a couple of new shows for weekends. Soul On Saturday is at 5pm and there's always a great selection of those classic songs. The Country Show happens Every Sunday at 11pm playing a wide mix of those favourites along with some current songs.
