Podcast Radio partners with Health Info Radio

PRESS RELEASE — March 18, 2020

Podcast Radio will be relaying parts of the newly created Health Info Radio across London and Surrey during the Coronavirus COVID-19 crisis.

Health Info Radio started broadcasting on Monday evening across several multiplexes in the UK. It is a non-profit temporary station offering help and advice throughout the pandemic.

Podcast Radio will link up with Health Info Radio for at three times each day for an hour, initially at 10am, 1pm and 5pm.

Podcast Radio CEO Gerry Edwards says: “We’re really impressed by the inspired team that have created Health Info Radio so quickly to put over science-based prevention information without speculation, discussion or opinion. As a new station, we have the format flexibility to react quickly and provide a DAB+ platform for the new station throughout the crisis.”

Consultant Paul Chantler, who is also a director of Podcast Radio, says: “We broadcast across much of London and Surrey on DAB+ and we felt it vital that we play our part in helping to relay Health Info Radio to listeners in the capital. Clear and authoritative public service information is essential to helping fight the pandemic.”

Podcast Radio is from today also broadcasting a short daily podcast created from inside Spain’s lockdown called Spanish Practices and produced by former LBC and BBC producer Steve Campen.
