Welcome to UWS Radio!
End of an era...#GoodbyeChris
On his show on the 25th April, Chris Houston announced after 10 years at UWS Radio he will be leaving after 10 series on the 6th June 2018.
Chris has been with UWS (formally UCA) Radio since 2008 and has presented over 200 shows - not including covering shows such as Brian Anderson's Weekender Show and former presenter Peter Sturgeon's 80% 80s (which aired for over 16 years!).
Chris has also been a student twice with UWS achieving a 1st class honours degree in Computing in 2015, and then a MA in Broadcast Journalism in 2017.
The 6th of June will also be the 10th anniversary show and will feature the best bits over the last 10 years and some former and current presenters will be in the studio and on the phone for a final chat to Chris on air before he moves on to his new projects.
It'll be a show not to miss. The final show will be broadcast live from the earlier time of 6pm-9pm BST June 6th 2018.

Happy New Year from UWS Radio!
It's officially 2018 and the radio station is back up and running and ready for the year ahead! We already have new requests for shows and some of our second year students have decided to continue their shows from last year. So much to get your teeth - or should that be ears? - into so don't forget to tune in!
Hello from Lauren Harris!
Hello there! As mentioned in the post below, Chris Houston has moved on from UWS and our student management team after gaining his Masters degree. He did an absolutely fantastic job at revamping our website and giving it the shiny new look it has now! However, now that he's gone, it's time for the website to pass into new hands - namely, mine! I'm Lauren and I'm one of the management team here at UWS Radio. Check back here for updates from me whenever something interesting is going on! Right now, the 2nd year Broadcast Production students are working on creating the shows for their Radio Practice assessment and they will be going live in the next few weeks - so look out for that! There will be a whole host of new talent hitting our airwaves, and we at the station cannot wait!
As always, thank you for your continued listernership!
Goodbye (for now) from Chris Houston!
Hi everyone! Now that my time with UWS as a student has come to end once again due to finishing my masters course I have stood down from the student management team. I would like to thank the team and Station manager Chris Gilgallon for everything.
Over the last nine years I have seen this station grow and develop to what it has become and trust me - it ain't over yet! From September, Natalie, Lauren, Rachel and Maddie will take over and will lead the station to victory I am more than sure.
I would like to personally thank everyone who listens to us and to everyone involved - your support means the world.
I will be taking a well earned rest for a few months and even doing a spot of travelling to Australia, New Zealand and Singapore from the end of September. I will be back presenting the 9th series of Chris on UWS from November the 1st so please listen out for that!
All the best and keep listening to the best student radio station there definintely is (I certainly think so).
New Schedule Being Created for 2017/2018 Term

Summer Time At UWS Radio
Well another two trimesters have been and gone and for many of UWS's students - it's summer time!
Everyone at UWS Radio would like to thank all our listeners for the last 6 months while the station has been going through some exciting changes.
Over the summer and into the new term, the student management team will be working hard on new developmets and projects.
For our presenters, some will be taking the summer to recharge and relax before restarting their courses in Septemer. However, for many shows these will run during the summer. Please visit our schedule page for the latest summer schedule.
