Our Social Enterprise Commitments To Northampton
NNBC will be part of the social and economic growth of Northampton by becoming a fully accessible and inclusive community radio focussed entirely on the mainstream adult population living in the town.
NNBC will provide a daily intelligent mix of well-produced local news, current affairs, local information and music, delivered by knowledgeable local presenters, local contributors and students.
NNBC will give a voice to the opinions of our community. We will facilitate discussions on the most important and locally relevant issues. We will actively seek to involve Northamptonians in the setting of the agenda for news and current affairs.
NNBC will become a “hub”, a focal point for our community’s social media. We will foreshadow the future primary role of community radio to become the “connector” for social media in an identifiable community.
NNBC has developed a strategic partnership with the University of Northampton. This means education and training will be an everyday activity of the radio station. NNBC will develop skills in journalism, presentation, marketing, web content creation, media sales and engineering.
