A NEW radio station is set to hit the airwaves this year after Ofcom awarded a five-year licence to a community group in west Suffolk.
Forest Heath Public Radio, based in Mildenhall, aims to start broadcasting from this spring for English, American, Polish and Portuguese residents.
The five-year FM licence from Ofcom follows a seven-year campaign by Jeff Davis, founder of the non-profit community radio station.
Mr Davis said Forest Heath Public Radio, the parent company of Zeta Digital FM, would rely heavily on local volunteers and cater for the disadvantaged, minority ethnic communities, refugees, young people, senior citizens, and US Air Force personnel at RAF Mildenhall and RAF Lakenheath.
