CAMBRIDGE – September 4, 2012. As radio stations continue to reduce their local output, Cambridge 105 is staying firmly put with a daily breakfast show from the centre of the city.
Cuts at the BBC have this week forced Radio Cambridgeshire to drop its Cambridge breakfast show in favour of a countywide programme from Peterborough. Other so-called local stations already count other towns and cities in their coverage area.
Presenters Neil Whiteside and Lottie Booth are on the air every weekday morning from Cambridge 105’s studios in Gwydir Street.
The programme features a mix of music local chat, travel and information from 7am each weekday morning.
“When you live or work in a city like Cambridge you don’t want to hear about places that are over 40 miles away,” says Neil. “We’re lucky to have a great bunch of listeners, with plenty of ideas, and they’re right here in Cambridge.”
From popular music shows during the day through to specialist shows in the evening and at weekends, Cambridge 105 serves the entire community, broadcasting more local hours than any other station in the area.
Cambridge 105 broadcasts on FM to a potential audience of 150,000 listeners across the city.
