The independent radio survey, RAJAR, has today revealed that more than 100,000 people are now listening to BBC Wiltshire every week.
Mary Sanders, Editor of BBC Wiltshire said: “It’s absolutely fantastic that more than 100,000 people in Wiltshire are choosing to listen to BBC Wiltshire. Our aim is to be at the heart of the conversation in our county and we love sharing our listeners’ stories about life here. We’re so happy that more people are joining us for a mix of great music, entertainment and the best local news and sport.”
BBC Wiltshire is currently running ‘Step Into Summer’ a campaign to get Wiltshire walking during May. The station is encouraging listeners to donate their miles to a collective total. The aim to walk around the county border has already been hit, plus the perimeter of Great Britain, so they are now seeing how many times they can walk around the world in the remaining weeks. The local community is getting involved, including Wiltshire Police Chief Constable Mike Veale. The station has seen an increase of 22,000 listeners over the year.
