A local non-profit radio station run entirely by volunteers has announced exciting new opportunities following news of its expansion.

The Cat, the only licensed community radio station in Crewe and Nantwich, which broadcasts from Crewe studios continues to move forward and expand its offering to the community.

Having recently launched a brand new sister radio station, Xtra Cat, to serve as a hotbed for new music, it also provides a platform for those who wish to get into radio to showcase and develop their talent.

The station has also proven to be a media partner at Nantwich Town FC, and jointly established South Cheshire DAB Ltd, a ‘not-for-profit’ company, to bring on a small scale hit (digital radio) in Crewe in Cheshire and Nantwich, and surrounding areas.

This created opportunities for more enthusiastic volunteers to join The Cat, in a variety of roles on both sides of the microphone, including on-air presenters, music library administrators, show producers, presenters and technicians for traveling events and social media managers.
