Future Radio Announces New Breakfast Time Presenters

Wake up to the sound of Norwich with Future Radio’s brand new breakfast show, hosted by our brand new presenting team!

Broadcast right from the heart of the city centre at Open, Norwich’s Youth Trust venue, you’ll be able to tune in to Breakfast with Future Radio between 7.30 to 10 am Monday to Friday, to get the latest news, travel and weather to help you on your way with your morning commute. Breakfast is said to be the most important meal of the day and we believe the same is true for your morning radio show. We’ll provide the perfect soundtrack to that much needed first cup of tea and help you start your day off in the right way.

Sam Day, Rammer and Jamie Debenham are your hosts for the only breakfast show from Norwich, about Norwich, for the people of Norwich, offering local listeners an alternative to the commercial mainstream that dominates our airwaves. Expect your ears to be graced with fantastic music from across the decades as well as some of the most exciting new local music that has been blossoming in our fine city.  Our three new clued-up presenters will give you the inside scoop as to what is happening in Norwich with the daily what’s on guide, meaning you’ll never miss out on seeing your favourite local band or an up-and-coming comedy night again. The show will get right to the heart of Norwich with features and interviews from local people and local businesses.

Future Radio is a community radio station and part of Future Projects, a registered charity which exists to deliver lasting change for those most in need, by providing integrated, sustainable services which promote education, skills, health, 

Future Radio’s Broadcast Coordinator Dean Tucker said;“I am thrilled that Future Radio will be bringing a truly local breakfast for Norwich, brought to you by our friendly team who live and breathe our fine city. Unlike other stations, we at Future Radio and Future Projects are a charity striving to provide vital help, support and life changing chances to anyone and everyone.  It will be a shop window for what we do, what community radio can do and what’s happening in Norwich.”

About Future Radio:

Future Radio, a volunteer led community radio station is part of Future Projects, a registered charity that was founded in 2000 by two volunteers who had become increasingly frustrated at the social exclusion, poverty, and lack of support in their local community in Norwich. Wanting to make a difference, they set up Future Projects, whose work seeks to provide integrated, sustainable services, which promote education, skills, health, employment and wellbeing.

Future Radio was one of the first community radio stations in the UK to be awarded a full time community broadcast licence. Since its foundation in 2005, we have grown from strength to strength, winning awards and acclaim in the process.

More than just a radio station, Future Radio is a community that brings together people from all sections of society so that their voices can be heard and valued. We serve the local community and provide a range of opportunities to build skills, confidence and aspiration through community broadcasting.

    Dragons Trampoline Club, Norfolk's only recreational and competitive trampoline Club are in desperate need of a new home. Dragon Trampoline Club is non profit making and all the coaches do so on a volunteer basis.

We also run specific disability and adult only classes, which have been proving increasingly popular and has been a great opportunity for all ages and abilities to get involved with the sport!

    We moved into a designated centre with a local gymnastics club 4 years ago, which we believed would be a permanent home, and allowed us to keep our equipment up full time, purchase new equipment, and allowed us to install a rig - a vital coaching tool for teaching and progressing higher level skills. Unfortunately, they served us notice a couple of months ago in order to expand their own club, and if we do not find a new home by September, we are at risk of having to shut down
