MKFM Column: Local radio continues to grow in MK

More and more people are now listening to truly local radio in Milton Keynes…

Over the last few months, the MKFM team has been busy working to improve the radio station’s coverage. At the start of 2020, we upgraded our transmitter, meaning MKFM now has even greater reach across Milton Keynes.

Ofcom also gave us the go-ahead to increase the transmitter power, so MKFM is sounding better in glorious stereo DAB Digital Radio.

You can hear us across Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire, and Buckinghamshire on DAB. Most recent cars and vans come fitted with DAB Digital Radio as standard, which is ideal if you commute in or outside of Milton Keynes thanks to our much larger coverage area.

MKFM is also available on 106.3FM, online, smart speakers or the Radio-player app on smartphones. This means that there are plenty of ways you can get your daily dose of local radio.

Come Easter, there will be a second transmitter based in Wolverton which will boost the coverage even further still.

Darren Dorrington, Managing Director, said: “As a not-for-profit organisation, we focus on providing local news, local travel, and local entertainment and so much more to the people of MK.

“We are passionate about showcasing the brilliant things this buzzing city has to offer. Once our second transmitter is up we will be able to do all this but on a far greater scale.”

Local radio means nothing without local people. Your feedback helps us grow. Your comments help shape MKFM for the future and allow us to provide content that residents want to hear.
