CityLIVE Radio Donation

I am the owner of  CityLIVE Radio a fully licensed online radio station that is operated by volunteers that plays a mixture of live and auto-programming - 24/7, broadcasting to the UK, USA and Canada, via our website, Live365 and My Tuner apps, smart televisions and smart speakers.
Since we launched in November 2019, we have had over 18,800 listeners tune in on both sides of the Atlantic. In the Summer of 2021, we are expanding our services onto DAB, starting in the Northeast of England, that will expand our audience to nearly 400,000.



Our playlist consists of music from the 1960's to the present Top40 releases. We also pay tribute to the artists we feature, by playing their tracks in full and uncensored, which is why our listeners enjoy tuning in.
Our live shows are presented by radio veterans of UK radio, who have helped raise our listener figures. We have a variety of live shows from breakfast to drive time and into the early hours with many specialist evening shows.

Our team of in-house of presenters have their shows syndicated across several FM and DAB stations around the world.

Chris Storey has been a radio presenter for almost thirty years, working for Vita Radio, BBC Radio and Bauer Media stations. His show The Evening Show is broadcast to several UK and Spanish FM stations.

Les Adam has also been around on the airwaves for years, presenting shows on Vita Radio, 105 Zetland FM and Radio Leyland. His show The BIG Saturday Night Party is broadcast to several UK, Canadian and New Zealand FM stations.

Rebecca Hall has been a radio presenter for the past five years. She started her career in student radio and is a journalist graduate. Rebecca presents the Becca and Matt Weekender on Saturday afternoons.

As for myself, being the owner of CityLIVE Radio, I have been working in the broadcasting industry for twenty years, on both television and radio, working for the BBC, Sky News, Leeds UTD TV, Teesside TV, 105 Zetland FM and Radio Hartlepool. 

Our Team is fully dedicated to make a success of the station, knowing the competition we're up against.

Our plan is not only to be a successful radio station, but we have plans to be a training hub for those wanting a career in the radio industry, with interest being shown from local colleges for us to be apart of their curriculum.
Further plans include building a state of the art studio that will be on-par with established commercial stations.

As previously stated we are a fully licensed radio station and pay royalties via Sound Exchange, BMI, PRS, Re: Sound, ASCAP, SOCAN and SESAC.

The station is currently funded by myself, but like any self-funded projects, money can be limited, therefore I'm now seek your help with the running costs of our station. Any money we may raise will help contribute towards studio fees, license fees, office supplies, advertising and additional equipment allowing us to continue to provide a high quality service. 

Thank you for your time and any donations you may give us.
