High Peak Radio - FM 103.3 - Highpeak Junction

Greatest Hits, Latest News

High Peak Radio started broadcasting on 4th April, 2004. It is one of the few independent commercial stations in England not owned by a large ... See more media group, and is locally-owned and managed. It was set up following a series of trial broadcasts starting in June 1999. Five broadcast groups made a bid to win the licence. We are the successful group. To quote Chairman Clive Beattie, the station set out to be the High Peak's "station of choice" by providing music, entertainment, news and information 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. From the first day of broadcast, it became clear that the team at High Peak Radio had hit upon a winning formula for the High Peak; at a time when many small commercial radio stations seemed to be heading in the opposite direction, High Peak Radio chose to include more local news, local information and features than the vast majority of radio stations of this size. And in doing so, the station developed a loyal and enthusiastic listenership which continues to this day. The station has a management team of three executive directors. The day-to-day management of the station is the responsibility of Sales Director Paul Jenner, who has managed the station since launch. He is supported by his brother Steve, who is Operations Director and by Company Secretary and Technical Director Roger Price. This team is advised and supported by the non-executive directors, Chairman Clive Beattie, Vice-Chair Jennie Ball, and directors Tim Oddy and Bill Preece. The broadcast team are amongst the best-known names - and voices - in the North West. You can read about them on the "Meet the Team" pages. Playing a wide range of popular hit music and keeping listeners updated are the two main aims of the station. To do this, along with our acclaimed national and international news service, we have a dedicated team working on producing regular, detailed, high-quality local news reports. Our main slogan is "Greatest hits – Latest news" – and that's what we try our utmost to bring to radio listeners in the High Peak, day in, day out, wherever the news happens, whatever the age of the hit song throughout the age of pop music - from rock'n'roll classics to the current number one hit on the UK Hit 40. Broadcasting on 106.4 FM in Buxton and Glossop, 103.3 FM in the mid-High Peak and the Hope Valley, and 106.6 FM from the studios in Chapel-en-le-Frith, the success story of High Peak Radio continues, thanks to the support of what we think are the best and most loyal radio listeners in the world. It reaches parts of Derbyshire which cannot be reached by any other local commercial broadcasters via a carefully-designed network of transmitters. Indeed, many people in the High Peak expressed the view that it just couldn’t be done, such are the challenges posed by the terrain. But like the railway engineers many years ago and the pioneering canal engineers before them, Roger Price’s technical team found a way. And the results can be heard every day, throughout the High Peak. Whilst many people told us about the difficulties, we like to think of the opportunity to broadcast to the wildest, most beautiful place in England as a tremendous privilege. We also carry a link to our sister station Ashbourne Radio which launched in May 2008 and has also gone on to become a great success and hugely popular in Ashbourne and the Derbyshire Dales. It is managed by Steve Jenner. This service is very much "in the style of" High Peak Radio and means that our group broadcast to almost half of the land area of Derbyshire. Thank you for reading this and for listening!
