North Tyneside Businesses on Right Wavelength as North Tyneside Business Forum Gets Own Show

Community radio station, Radio Northumberland is opening its airways to the business community.

The internet-based station is partnering with North Tyneside Business Forum to host a series of shows highlighting the work of the Forum and the businesses that it serves.

Celebrating its tenth year, the North Tyneside Business Forum is run by local business people for local businesses. It has more than 1300 members each receiving regular information emails, access to events to enhance their business skills, organised visits to businesses and business to business networking opportunities. Now, the radio show will reach businesses in a different way and provide opportunities for businesses to shout across the airwaves about their successes and the help they’ve received from the Forum.

Karen Goldfinch, Vice Chair of the North Tyneside Business Forum, said: “We already give our members a voice in the world of business but now, this show will literally tell the world just how well our businesses are growing as well as offering advice and expert opinion on matters which affect them.”

Stewart Allen, station manager with the Bedlington based radio station said:

“We are delighted to be able to host this show with the Forum. We already have music, local history and lifestyle shows and this business focused programme helps us to cater for another aspect of our catchment area north of the Tyne and beyond.

The show will contain interviews with businesses, views and advice from industry experts and a selection of music. The first show will air on Tuesday 2nd July at noon. Radio Northumberland can be found at www.radionorthumberland.com, via TuneIn radio app or simply ask your smart speaker for “Radio Northumberland.”

North Tyneside businesses that would like to feature in future shows should contact Amy Farrell at the Forum:

“This show is especially for North Tyneside businesses and I’d urge anyone with a story to tell to get in touch,” she said.
