Fix Radio – a radio station for tradespeople launched on DAB across London in 2017 – launched in Manchester at the end of January.

Fix Radio Manchester features local presenters, regional content and music.

The breakfast show team broadcasted live from the roof as well as being based on a crane at one of Salford’s newest and prestigious developments – Downtown – which is being developed by McGoff Construction.

The show and introduction from the radio’s CEO Louis Timpany was watched by key clients along with some of the industry’s leading press. The first of their bacon butty tours for Manchester also set off providing over 100 bacon butties to local sites.

The tour is aiming to visit every building site in Manchester over the next five weeks.

“This is an exciting time for FIX Radio, and we are proud to be expanding our coverage to more listeners across the UK,” Louis said. “It is important to the team that we not only provide great entertainment but also regional information on traffic and weather specifically created to support the tradesperson.”

The London station now commands a growing weekly audience of over 35,000 listeners.

The station has also partnered with industry names including: Osmo, the FMB, Trade Direct Insurance, and Festool.
