After a week of being offline due to problems caused by a large telephone company, Vectis Radio is now back up and running from their brand new studio in Newport.
Vectis Radio moved from the small studio at the Quay Arts Centre last week to a much bigger studio at Newport football club, complete with free parking which is something you don’t see much on the Island.
The Isle of Wight Chronicle was invited to come down and join Ian Mac for the first radio show and phone-in at the new venue after finally being connected to the internet.
The local community radio station supports many local people and businesses on the Isle of Wight and has a large group of loyal listeners, some of them had shown great support by creating a Facebook page and tweeting to BT after they failed to deliver on promises about getting the radio station back online.
Ian Mac told the Chronicle: “We are so glad to be back up and running after a week of silence. We had everything setup and ready to go on the 2nd of this month but we was stuck in the hands of British Telecom. We would just like to thank our listeners for there support and patience this week”
If you haven’t already heard of Vectis Radio then make sure you check them out at www.vectisradio.com. They offer a great range of music and the only radio station on the Island to offer a live lunchtime phone-in
