Radio Brunel has reported an increase of 324% in broadcast hours during the three months of first term up till the 31st December 2014, figures revealed this month show.
The final quarter of 2014 saw the student-run station broadcast an estimated total of 368 hours’ worth of material, in comparison to an estimated of 113 hours of material in the same period for 2013.
The station, which was broadcasting from the Antonin Artaud studio during term one due to renovations to the student media building (worth over £2000), resumed broadcasting on the 19th January and is now on air 24 hours a day, 7 days a week! Early indications suggest that the station will exceed the term one broadcasting hours figure by early February.
Engagement with the station has also sky-rocketed over recent months, going from a team of only three people in August 2014, to almost sixty individual show hosts (including a full committee of seven people) as of January 2015 – an increase of almost 6000%!
Radio Brunel is currently looking for an Online Content Manager to join the committee, and still has slots available for term 2, so if you would like to get involved, or simply want to find out more information, visit the website at bru-media.co.uk/radiobrunel.
