Your local community station

Station Closure

It is with a Heavy Heart that today I must announce that Torbay Sound CIC is to cease broadcasting at the end of this week. This is a sad day for all at the station and from the responses we have been getting via Social Media, a sad day for all that follow the Station.

We moved into the Winner Street Studio’s under a cloud that we haven’t been able to shake, but we are hoping to rise again in the New Year. New Station, New Start and New Name.

We would like to Thank the Groups and Organisations that it has been our Privilege to work with over the last year, which include LifeWorks, 1st Marldon Scouts, Ageing Well, Co-ordin8, The South Devon Players, The Torbay Road Traders Association, The Torbay Community Builders, Preston Sands Hotel, The Paignton Chamber of Commerce, The Missing Kind and The Paignton Lions to name just a few.

We have made many friends over the last year, including a lot of local musicians who have been a pleasure to work with.

Our aim was to be a truly community based Community Radio Station, and I feel that we achieved that in our short run as a CIC. When we come back, we will be wiser and stronger and with the same goals and objectives, to give Torbay a Community Radio Station that it can be proud of.

We would also like to thank everyone who has supported us and listened in to our shows over the last year. Without you, it just wouldn’t have been worth it.

So for now, This has been Torbay Sound, Thank you and good night.
