Colourful Radio targets 12 million listeners
United Kingdom - March 2009
Colourful Radio has relaunched in the hope that its mix of music and topical debate will claim an increasing share of the 12 million-strong audience of London listeners.
Award-winning broadcaster Henry Bonsu has teamed up with veteran DJ Gordon
(Mac) McNamee for the venture. The radio station, now on DAB format, will focus primarily on the capital’s African-Caribbean communities.
"I think it is time for another broadcasting revolution,” said MacNamee. “DAB gives
radio operators a chance to build independent stations that are not bogged down by big company mentality and bureaucracy.
“Colourful Radio offers the perfect combination between an uplifting 'feel good' station
and a forum for debating issues that are close to people's hearts. It
will make a fantastic contribution to the capital, its citizens
In addition to DAB, Colourful Radio can be found on Sky Channel 0194 in the
UK and Eurobird satellite across Europe and online.
