WELCOME TO OUR FOURTH ANNUAL RADIOTHON!
As a not-for- profit radio station run entirely by volunteers, fundraising becomes an integral part of making us sustainable. We rely heavily on the generosity and support of our listeners who believe that we contribute significantly to making Northumberland a fabulous place to live. This is our Fourth Annual Radiothon – and it will also celebrate the approach of four years of being on the air at 89.7 on the FM dial.
We are the voice of the community: we proudly present local news, entertainment and local events; and we showcase local businesses and organizations and the terrific work they do for the community.
We hope you will agree that Northumberland 89.7 FM is an integral part of this community. Please help us sustain the reality of Northumberland 89.7 FM – Truly Local Radio – by giving generously.
