About Riverside Radio
Riverside Broadscasting CIC runs the not for profit, community radio station Riverside Radio which serves the South West London boroughs of Richmond, Wandsworth, Merton and Lambeth. Volunteers broadcast local news, sport, arts and culture and specialist music and speech programmes.
We celebrate our greatness, diversity, and vibrant culture by exposing the talents and creativity of the people who live here and hold those in power to account with a focus on improving life in South West London for everyone.
Riverside Radio has a volunteer force of around 200 local people from every walk of life, age, and background who come together to create something special for local people.
We have built a strong, friendly volunteer family, giving those involved a shared purpose and pride in our area. Working with the national charity Sound Vision, we provide training programmes for local young people, gaining skills in media production and presentation. Our 'Radio Club' youngsters gain an Arts Award as part of this process.
There is much to celebrate with the most amount of green open spaces in the capital, more people participating in sport than anywhere else in London, a huge variety of arts and performance venues, numerous local festivals and events, a thriving business community, and stimulating and active political life.
Riverside Radio is at the heart of South West London, connecting our diverse communities, celebrating our strengths, and encouraging debate.
