Welcome to our new look website
102.4 Radio Hartlepool won a full-time licence to broadcast to the town back in 2008. Since then we have entertained the listeners with a mix of chat, local news and some great music with an air of professionalism that matches the 'big name' radio stations.
We use a team of dedicated volunteers to maintain our on-air output and there are always a variety of different personalities used. Many people come to the station having had no training and we carefully guide them to find 'their voice' and make sure they are ready and confident before putting them on-air.
Radio Hartlepool has helped raise thousands of pounds for charity by giving valuable on-air promotion to several charities and local community groups over the last six years and we continue to do so.
We truly are at the heart of the community with our studios in the centre of Hartlepool, amongst a bustling population. With our open-plan view onto York Road, its good to watch the world go by as we bring you more local shows.
Life's a beach for Liam!
Liam Lewis is no stranger to Radio Hartlepool. His first on-air interviews where as part of his job as a lifeguard for Hartlepool Borough Council where he came along and talked about sporting activites for townspeople.
Then Liam told us that he was about to appear on ITV dating show, 'Take Me Out', which is hosted by Paddy McGuiness. Liam proved to be a funny, memorable character and that lead to some personal appearances and modelling work.
Now working as a firefighter, Liam is also one of the stars of 'Ex On The Beach', an MTV series where a group of lads and lasses believe they are going to date each other. However, one by one, their ex's appear on the beach (hence the title!) and tensions are raised.
During the run we are seeing a side of Liam jokingly named as 'the stirrer'. Liam is determined to fan a few flames and cause some drama. Its rivetting stuff and very funn at times.
We think Liam has a bright future ahead of him and can't wait till he pops into Radio Hartlepool towers to update us.
Ex On The Beach is on MTV every Tuesday at 10pm.
