We broadcast hourly national news, provided by IRN, otherwise known as “The Sky News Centre”. We also provide a mix of local news and information every 20 minutes, 24 hours a day.
Our Local news and information service is known as “The Sedgemoor FM Info Update” and is compiled using local news, press releases, information about events and charity appeals. The “Info Update” plays every 20 minutes, on the hour (after national news) at 20 past and at 20 to. Most of the information can also be found here, on our website.
As a community radio station, we have extremely limited resources. To maximise our effectiveness, we utilise professional computerised technology from ENCO to ensure we serve our community to the highest standards at all times.
Ofcom, the broadcast regulator restricts community radio stations from earning more than half of their income from a single source. This means that for every £1 we earn in advertising, we have to find £1 from other sources.
That said however, advertising on Sedgemoor FM is extremely effective. We reach more people in Bridgwater than most social media posts… we enhance your brand. We connect the isolated.
