As Phil Johnson completes this month's radio show pilot he's probably exhausted from the amount of work he's had to get through but it's been worthwhile . The pilot was a huge success and the show showed a healthy profit even after the extra promotional costs of starting up. What happens now is that the Radio Newark team have to raise another band of sponsorship for March and if that too is proven successful, a permanent licence follows.
I think we have all thoroughly enjoyed the quality and professionalism of the pilot, it won back hundreds of fans from the Newark area and became great listening. Newark deserves a radio station, Phil's proved it can be a success, let's keep an eye out for more sponsors for the next phase of this fantastic community project. In the meantime the station will continue with an internet presence.
Thank you to Phil, all those DJ's and the hardworking team who put such great programmes together. We'll see you all again in the new year. Get digging out those sponsors!
