MKFM Column: Snow days with MKFM

Children may be hoping for snow this winter and MKFM is fully prepared with the latest travel and school closure updates…

On the radio, on social media and on our website, we’ve got MK covered. Since MKFM was founded in 2011, Milton Keynes has seen some sizeable periods of snow.

As your dedicated radio station for Milton Keynes, our team are on standby again this year with the most comprehensive local service.

MKFM has direct links to the council, police and schools as well as all the information you need on the roads, trains, buses and all other public services.

During the snow last year, our statistics show that we probably reached almost every person in Milton Keynes through our on-air broadcasts, our website and social media – all of which were constantly updated with all the essential information.

HOW TO KEEP UPDATED

Tune your radio to 106.3FM or find us on DAB Digital Radio. Even if it doesn’t snow, we provide full travel updates every weekday between 7am and 7pm.

If there’s snow or a major incident, our team provide additional coverage late into the evening and over the weekends.

In the event of school closures, we broadcast these as soon as we get the information from the council and the various schools themselves.

You can also listen to MKFM online via MKFM.com, on mobile apps such as RadioPlayer and TuneIn Radio and on smart speakers like Amazon Echo by saying ‘Play MKFM’.
