The University of Sussex’s own radio station, University Radio Falmer (URF), has recently announced that it will be launching a whole new breakfast show in week five. The show will run from 10am until 12pm every weekday, and will feature music, competitions, guests, features and news updates.
This will be the first time in years that URF has aired a breakfast show and they will pick their most experienced presenters from their other shows. There will also be a team of producers working behind the scenes, something which URF has never done before.
The chair of the station, Kit Bradshaw, said that “everyone at URF is really excited about coming together to produce this brand-new show that we can be proud of. I hope the Breakfast Show will increase the prominence of URF across campus.”
Bradshaw also mentioned that the radio station is open to any students who wish to present, produce shows, interview bands or report on news stories.
Second-year psychology student Hannah Mendoza-Wolfson commented: “I think it’s great that a wider range of material can be aired, hopefully this will reach a broader selection of people. “It’s a shame the station isn’t better advertised.”
The show is accessible online at www.urfonline.com.
