About Us

Koast Radio is a community radio station based in Ashington.

We’ve been broadcasting on-line since May 2010 and in December 2015 we went live on 106.6fm across South East Northumberland.

We continue to broadcast on-line so our listeners can choose to listen to us over the airwaves and online via a computer, tablet or smartphone using an application such ass tunein radio.

All of our shows are delivered by local volunteers and and we aim to deliver varied and interesting radio providing a mix of general music, specialist music shows, shows that feature up and coming talent in the region, local sport, community and business.

We also provide a platform for people to inform the community of local news and events, aiming to make radio accesible to all.

Focussing on South East Northumberland we want to provide programming that is entertaining and beneficial to those in the local area and a real alternative to the commercial radio stations operating in the area.

Koast Radio is a not for profit organisation and although we need to raise revenue to raise money to cover our costs we reinvest our money back into improving what we do.

We welcome everyone from all backgrounds to come and join our team at Koast Radio.

Your station, your music and your choice.
