KCR 106.7 launches in June

Knowsley-based KCR 106.7 will take to the airwaves from 16th June, it has been revealed. The station's offices and two studios are based at the new 14m Cables Retail Park in Prescot. With a target audience between 25 and 54 years, KCR will offer a round-the-clock service of music, community news, traffic information and local sports coverage. Building work on the premises which are above Global Video in the Retail Park were completed just last month.

Launch director Steve Dickson said:

"When local radio comes to a new area, the people can't remember what it was like before that. Due to the fact we will be very focused on Knowsley, St Helens and East Liverpool, we will be able to feature Saturday and Sunday league football or the local hockey team's results."

Terry Lennaine, senior presenter, said: "We are not trying to be everything to everyone. We are a local station and will be serving the local population."

Many of the team behind KCR 106.7 operated Whiston Hospital's Channel Broadcasting as well as charity radio station Radio Cracker. The award of the local radio licence follows several successful short-term broadcasts through station Radio Briars Hey. Senior presenter Terry Lennaine has previously appeared on BBC Radio Merseyside.
