Red Kite Radio Presenters' Montage

Red Kite Radio, Haddenham's local radio station, reaches its 3rd birthday on Thursday 18th June.

Since its first broadcast back in 2017, Red Kite Radio has seen many changes — including a greatly enlarged team of volunteers presenting a much wider range of specialist music shows.

Still based in the studio at Haddenham Garden Centre, courtesy of the Hawkins family, Red Kite Radio broadcasts 24 hours a day and 365 days a year.

Station Manager Steve Fox said "Without our team of devoted presenters and newsreaders, Red Kite Radio would not exist. It is their enthusiasm and professionalism that see the station through its punishing schedule. All of our presenters are unpaid and during the current pandemic have had to adapt to working from home in order to keep us on air. The Covid-19 crisis has brought us other challenges too. During 2020 we have seen the virtual extinction of our revenue from both advertisers and fundraising events. Without the goodwill and donations of local organisations, councils and our loyal listeners we would not be here now."

Last year Red Kite Radio was nominated for three national awards for their programming and are looking to build on that in the coming year.

The radio station will continue to be in the heart of the community and will always look to get involved in any charitable event in the local area, whether that's helping with promotions or taking part in the event itself.
