About Us


Radio Blackburn, whats it all about ?

There’s not much more important than local community and the building of that community.

And that’s why, here at Radio Blackburn, your Community Station, we reflect and enhance the local area, the towns and many villages which make up this unique place to live and work. Radio Blackburn operates a truly local and professional community radio station for the benefit of all.

After months of hard work the dream was fully realised when on November the 5th 2023, Radio Blackburn launched its new brand!

We broadcast 24/7 on 102.2 FM across the Blackburn with Darwen area as well as streaming online via our website and our own app which is available on iPhones and Android devices, and of course smart speakers, just say “alexa play Radio Blackburn” or download our Alexa Skill.

Our target audience is 16-30 years of age and we play all the hits from 2010 onwards, with a policy that no song should be repeated in at least 3 days, keeping it fresh to listen to and entertaining no matter what time of day you listen.

Working with local charitable organisations is a priority, and a desire to bridge the different cultures and communities that live and prosper in the Blackburn with Darwen area.

Local businesses are catered for too, as a cost effective platform to market your brand, products and services.
