Hi – we’re June, Tina and Sue, Radio Newark’s Girls Around Town

After two and a half years as the Girls on Top with Boundary Sound, we jumped at the chance to join Radio Newark when it launched in November 2013.

For, by and about women (though we have plenty of men listening in when we’re on air!) each of our shows features local guests who have stories we think you’ll want to hear. From food to fashion, health to handbags, Arctic treks to vintage ice cream vans – we’re never short of something to say!!

Broadcast from Radio Newark’s state of the art media centre at Barnby Road Academy (just a couple of miles from the centre of Newark), the show is relaxed and informal in style. Even the most nervous guests are quickly put at their ease and invariably say afterwards that the experience was ‘just like sitting and chatting with friends over a cup of coffee’. Chocolate or cakes are even provided on occasion…

After two four-week broadcasts in November/December 2013 and April/May 2014, an application for a full-time licence for the station was submitted to Ofcom in June. The good news came through at the beginning of December, when we heard that, from early summer 2015, Radio Newark will be on air and online 24/7, 365 days a year for at least five years!

The news came during our third four-week stint in the run up to Christmas, with the Girls Around Town fronting four shows between Saturday 29 November and Saturday 20 December.

After eight months presenting the show every Saturday between 10am and 1pm, at the beginning of January 2016 we ‘migrated’ to Sundays, from 10am to 12 noon, and we’ve been there ever since…

Between shows, we keep in touch with listeners through the posts on this blog, on our Facebook page and via our Twitter feed. If you miss a show, you can even catch up with us later by listening to the podcasts – find out more about these here.

And we’re out and about all the time, at networking events, launches and parties (it’s a tough job but someone has to do it!), meeting other ‘girls around town’ who might like to join us in the studio as guests, either on a regular basis or as a ‘one-off’ to talk about a specific event, achievement or activity.

With shows every week till at least 2020, we’re going to need a lot of ladies so, whether you’re an experienced interviewee or a ‘radio virgin’, we’d love to hear from you. If you have an interesting story to tell or you’re an expert in a field you think would be of interest to listeners, why not get in touch?

And while you’re here, you might like to take a look at our Top Tips For Being A Great Guest, which will give you some ideas of how to prepare for your interview with us!

Find out how to get in touch with us here – we look forward to hearing from you…
