Eastbourne Youth Radio (EYR) is gearing up for its annual broadcast from Sussex Downs College – in what will be its 13th year.

This popular event, organised by the Eastbourne Education Business Partnership in association with Sussex Downs College, will take place from November 20-22.

As part of the non-stop broadcast extravaganza, hundreds of students aged five-19 will deliver more than 55 hours of programmes via 87.7FM.

It will also be streamed online at www.eyr.org.uk.

This year’s exciting line-up includes programmes planned, created and presented by around 2,500 young people from the Eastbourne area, supported by programme sponsors drawn from local businesses.

Listeners will be treated to an exciting mix of interviews, live drama and performances, chart music, competitions and special features.

As in previous years, EYR will be bought to you live from studios at the College’s Eastbourne campus.

Media students are responsible for the smooth running of the event, working with schools, special guests and programme sponsors to present a round-the-clock schedule of programmes.
