Launching Vale Radio
August 19, 2014
On Monday morning Julian was pleased to join the team at Vale Radio for their official launch show live on air with breakfast presenter Chris Marsden. Vale Radio is a community led radio station based in Haxby, featuring local news and events across the Vale of York, broadcasting across Selby, Thirsk, Linton on Ouse and West into Ryedale.
During the show Julian talked about the importance of community based news, and reflected that being part of a tight knit community is so important to many of his constituents in York Outer. Speaking afterwards, Julian said: “I was delighted to be part of the official launch of Vale Radio and proud to press ‘play’ on their very first song. Community radio is so important as a means of connecting with local residents, sharing local news and events, and also holding the city council and MPs such as myself to account. I wish Vale Radio every success for the future and look forward to working with them in the years and months ahead.”
