A community radio station should be broadcasting full-time to the Swaffham and Watton areas by the end of the summer after being awarded a new licence from regulator Ofcom.
Directors, staff and volunteers at Wayland Radio have been waiting for several months for the announcement and they are now working to get more funding, continue volunteer recruitment and training and finalise technical issues.
Project manager David Hatherly said: “Ofcom has recognised the importance of the project and the hard work of the team, by granting a full-time licence and we will now be able to provide a better quality signal to the area.”
