Takeover Radio is a charity operated community radio station broadcasting on 103.2 FM across to UK city of Leicester and to the world on the internet.
The station is operated entirely by the charity Takeover Radio Childrens Media Trust and specialises in training young people (ages 8-16) in the industry of radio and media, thus giving them experience in first hand presentation and production.
The station first began broadcasting back in 1996 as a programme format on a series of short term radio licence broadcasting stations (RSL's) before becoming it's own station at the start of the 21st century, also running on RSL licences.
In 2001, Takeover Radio was awarded a pilot 5-year Access Radio licence and began broacasting across Leicester on 103.2FM on Tuesday 5th March 2002. For more info on history, Click Here
