Community Voice FM (CVFM) is grassroots led Radio Station, which was launched on the 10th August 2009 with the aim to serving the diverse community of Middlesbrough and the wider Tees Valley region through a broad spectrum range of radio programmes and community projects.
The station has firmly established its self as alternative local choice by developing a excellent reputation for delivering its diverse range of programmes broadcasting on 104.5FM in the Middlesbrough area online, Android mobile App, and iphone/ipad (via TuneIn).
The station caters for diverse range of the communities, having developed programmes which cater for numerous musical tastes, cultures and interests. Asides from serving the niche music tastes, the station also broadcasts programmes in number of different world languages which caters for Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic communities.The radio station aims to bring communities together through music, sports, culture, discussion and debates by utilising the power of radio, this work is demonstrated by our commitment, support and sponsorship of flagship events in Middlesbrough’s Calendar e.g Middlesbrough Mela, The Intro Festival, Middlesbrough Literary Festival, Volunteer Star Awards, Tees Valley BME Achievement Awards and Ramadan Celebrations & Charity Event.
The radio station is predominantly operated by an enthusiastic and committed team of volunteers, supported by a small team of paid staff who coordinate volunteer activity and deliver community focused projects and training opportunities, which are designed to meet the aims and core commitments of the station.
Over the past 3 years the radio station has delivered a number of high profile and awarding winning projects, which have supported hundreds people with training, employability, volunteering and capacity building opportunities.
We are always looking to add to our pool of volunteers so if you can spare a few hours a week to support a local and rewarding initiative we would love to hear from you. Our programme schedule is fairly fluid which means we can experiment with new music and programme formats, so if you have a good idea for a new show then we would love to hear from you (full training will provided).
Remember this is your platform so if you’re a local Musician, Band, Entertainer, Poet, Comedian or whatever other talents you posses and want the rest of Middlesbrough and Tees Valley area to know about it then we are here for you.
