Oldham Community Radio has won a national award for its Tommyfield Live programme.

The program won a gold award in the Covid and Community Rebuild category at the 2022 Community Radio Association Awards at Kings House in Bedford on Saturday.

The new category recognizes how stations have weathered the pandemic in new and innovative ways.

Oldham Community Radio 99.7FM launched its Tommyfield Live program in October last year with the aim of taking radio out of traditional studios and into the public domain.

The station, currently based in Tommyfield Market, built a radio theater stage with limited budget and tools, and invited various guests to tell their stories with local musical acts.

Previous guests have included former Mayor of Oldham Cllr Jenny Harrison, chairman of Oldham Athletic Frank Rothwell and adventurer Steve Hill.

The program also aired live performances from acts such as The Parcel O ‘Rogues’, Vintage Pearls and Sam Warrener.

Commenting on the Tommyfield Live programme, the jury, who work in the radio, community and education sectors, said: “This entry demonstrated a beautiful way of interacting with the public, invigorating the programming and the bringing them back into contact with the community”.

In March, Oldham Community Radio celebrated its 15th anniversary and was awarded a further five years by regulator Ofcom.

Speaking about the importance of live radio earlier this year, Ian Wolstenholme, producer of Tommyfield Live, said: “Everyone talks about broadcasting, but we do ‘narrowcasting’. We talk to residents individually and they feel like part of a family.

“During the height of the pandemic, we provided a real lifeline for people who couldn’t see their family members.

“A family contacted the radio station to say they had lost a family member to Covid but could not have many funeral guests due to restrictions.

“They arranged with the funeral director to have the hearse driven through the streets where other family members lived and asked us at the station to play some music at that time. People took out their radios outside when the hearse passed This could only be achieved by a community radio.

Tommyfield Live can be heard Saturdays at noon on 99.7FM, online via the station’s website www.oldhamcommunityradio.com, and the program is streamed live at www.mixcloud.com.

The public can also go to the reception of the station and settle freely in the public to listen to the guests of the scene and take part in the action.

A new wave of radio station closures threatens journalism in Venezuela https://lkrlt.org/a-new-wave-of-radio-station-closures-threatens-journalism-in-venezuela/ Wed, 16 Nov 2022 21:34:08 +0000 https://lkrlt.org/a-new-wave-of-radio-station-closures-threatens-journalism-in-venezuela/ In recent decades, Venezuela has been subject to a dismantling of its media ecosystem.

In recent decades, Venezuela has been subject to a dismantling of its media ecosystem. The weakening of the conditions for the practice of journalism, whether in television, digital media, print or radio, has been evident and unstoppable under the current Venezuelan government administration.

In 2022, the attack was directed against radio stations. Organizations in favor of freedom of expression in Venezuela have recorded the closure of at least 95 radios. The states of Zulia, Tachira, Sucre and Falcón were the most affected. The highest number of closures were reported in September and October, with more than 50 cases in that period alone.

“This new wave of radio media closures shows that the government persists in its objective of adapting the media ecosystem to its interests, aggravating the information deficit that exists in the country,” said Daniela Alvarado Mejias, coordinator of the freedom of information of Prensa y Sociedad Institute (Ipys)said LatAm Journalism Review (LJR).

For Daniela Alvarado Mejias, coordinator of freedom of information at the Instituto Prensa y Sociedad (Ipys), the arbitrary closures of radio stations seriously undermine citizens’ right to know. (Photo: courtesy).

Ipys is an organization at the service of Venezuelan journalists that since 2005 has documented information about the systematic closure of news outlets. “These closures can have an influence in the face of possible presidential elections. [in 2024] where we will only have submissive coverage… Not being able to access free information spaces, which offer a plurality and diversity of voices, prevents information from being at the service of the people and it deprives them of enjoyment of other human rights,” Alvarado said.

The Venezuelan entity responsible for deciding on the closure of radio stations is the National Telecommunications Commission of Venezuela (Conatel, by its Spanish acronym), which acts as the Venezuelan state agency that regulates, supervises and controls telecommunications .

Conatel grants concessions, accompanied by administrative authorization, for the use and exploitation of the Venezuelan radio spectrum, which is public property. “Conatel does not provide public or up-to-date information on the status of its concessions, which are denied or terminated without procedures to ensure due process. Typically, these closures occur when what stations report is critical of those who cede official political power”, according to the news agency Espacio Público on its website.

Zulia state is the most affected

The Radiolandia 103.3 FM radio station had been on the air in Venezuela’s western state of Zulia since 2009. Its programming focused on broadcasting Latin music and bagpipes. [traditional music in that Venezuelan state]. The station opened under the concept of community radio [characterized by the active participation of the community in the content-creation process] and had a provisional operating permit.

According to its owner, they had already received three technical visits from Conatel to assess the equipment, operation and programming of the station. Also, because it is a community radio, they did social work near the station, which was also monitored by the telecommunications agency. Therefore, they were waiting for the definitive grant of the concession.

However, on September 6, they were forced to cut live transmissions and were threatened with confiscation of their work equipment if they did not comply with the order. They have not received any official document ratifying the closure, so they believe it was an arbitrary decision.

José Luis Vargas, director and owner of Radiolandia 103.3 FM in Maracaibo, said he had not received any official document justifying the closure of the radio station. (Photo: InstagramRadiolandia 103.3 FM).

“The station had three technicians, a producer and a director. In addition, each announcer or independent producer depended on advertising. Some 18 people were left jobless as a result of this closure,” said José Luis Vargas, director and owner of Radiolandia 103.3 FM in Maracaibo, LJR told. “The economic losses are high. Just to give an example, a transmitter costs more than US$2,000,” Vargas said.

According to National Union of Press Workers of Venezuela (SNTP, by its Spanish acronym), in all reported closure cases in 2022, the lack of due process and the right to self-defense were evident. There were no written documents, subpoenas or warrants specifying the instructions or detailing the reasons for the closure. Moreover, when an official visits the stations, he does so without proper identification and gives verbal orders. According to an SNTP reportin 80% of closures, Conatel gives instructions by telephone.

Zulia was the Venezuelan state with the highest number of radio station closures in the country in 2022. At least 30 radio stations have been closed in this state. Some of them have been: Sensacional Stereo 88.5 FM, Zulia Mía 91.3 FM, Kp 92.9 FM, Refugio 94.3 FM, Palabra 97.3 FM, High Class 98.1 FM, Destino 98.3 FM, Radiolandia 103.3 FM and Río Stereo 107.7 FM, among others .

Weakening of freedom of information

The closure of radio stations are measures that ignore the commitment made by the Venezuelan government to make progress towards achieving the United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals. According to National Economic and Social Development PlanVenezuela pledged to “continue to promote a new communication policy in the Americas, with particular emphasis on new information systems and regional media, and the promotion of new communication tools”.

Yet all the radio stations closed this year are located in regions outside the Venezuelan capital, and in many cases in areas where there are few sources of information.

Meanwhile, Venezuelan government officials have publicly denied that the administrative shutdown measures ordered by Conatel represent a violation of freedom of expression in Venezuela. Moreover, they say that the closure of these stations is due to problems with their broadcasting concessions.

According to Álvarado, in granting concessions, Conatel did so at its discretion and the process lacked transparency. “This has caused most broadcasting companies to have concessions that have expired, despite the fact that these broadcasters have submitted the required documentation. Even so, broadcasters are not receiving responses to their requests. situation in which they are constantly at risk of having their license revoked and their radio signal suspended indefinitely.”

This has happened in most of the cases reported this year. For example, radio stations 105.3 FM and Play Top 91.5 FM, both belonging to the Unión Radio circuit in Carabobo, in the center of the country, were taken off the air on October 14, alleging the expiry of the concession.

“We mourn the closure of radio stations. In my case, this is the third time I have had this painful experience: RCTV, El Carabobeño and now Unión Radio Noticias Valencia 105.3 FM, where I had my broadcast Lo de Hoy . I have no words to express this devastation,” the journalist said. Dhaméliz Diaz said on Twitter. As she explained in her message, she was forced to stop working in several media due to censorship: the closure of the RCTV television channel in 2007, the cancellation of the printed version of the newspaper El Carabobeño in 2016 and now the closure of the radio station Unión Radio Noticias in Carabobo.

“These arbitrary measures seriously undermine citizens’ right to know. This means that Venezuelan society has fewer spaces to claim to fully exercise their human rights,” Álvarado said, commenting on what the closure of radio stations means for freedom of information. “Radio news outlets have the greatest reach in the country. We have a population that ignores information about them, which is necessary for public opinion and decision-making in a conscious and responsible manner.”

Breakfast show hosts Mylo and Rosie are calling on listeners and residents of Leeds to buy an extra gift this festive season to help thousands of underprivileged children in the city.

The UK’s largest Christmas gift appeal, Mission Christmas is an annual campaign run by the Cash for Kids charity and supported by Pulse 1. In 2021, Mission Christmas across the UK raised over 14 £.1 million in gifts and cash donations, which was used to ensure 267,547 children and young people had gifts to open on Christmas Day – including 16,000 recipients in the Leeds area.

This year’s cost of living crisis has seen many families struggling with rising food and fuel bills and, with many already choosing between heating and eating, buying Christmas gifts is financially beyond the worse off. Around 14.5 million people live in poverty in the UK, according to the Joseph Rowntree Foundation UK Poverty Profile 2022. That’s more than one in five people.

In support of the campaign, the Yorkshire Evening Post is hosting the Annual YEP Carol Service at Leeds Minster Thursday, December 1. Visitors will be asked to donate presents for the children – and part of it will be donated to the Mission’s Christmas appeal.

Mylo and Rosie, hosts of breakfast show Pulse 1, said: ‘Every child should feel the excitement of waking up to presents on Christmas morning, but we know for some families that after another year difficult, they find it difficult to manage on a day-to-day basis. That’s why we want to help Santa Claus by ensuring that even more young people in our region can enjoy the joy of Christmas this year.

“People in our community have always been incredibly generous when it comes to Mission Noël, so if you can, just buy an extra gift this year and we’ll make sure it goes to a kid who really deserves it.”

People who want to support the campaign can bring their gifts to a number of drop-off points near them, including local B&M and Wickes stores. Just head to the Pulse 1 website and enter your postal code to find the nearest drop-off point to you.

Supporters can also purchase a gift online which will be delivered directly to the purchaser’s nearest Mission HQ with no delivery charge. Visit the Cash For Kids Website to browse the gift list. Alternatively, you can text Pulse to 70910 to donate £10 and the Cash for Kids team will donate on your behalf.

Cash for Kids works with thousands of local organizations across the UK who support disadvantaged children from babies to 18 year olds. Throughout the Mission Noël campaign, these organisations, along with social workers, school leaders and emergency services, nominate families in crisis to be supported by the appeal.

By highlighting their age, gender and special needs, Cash for Kids identifies the children the Mission hopes to support and the age groups that may have difficulty obtaining gifts throughout the appeal.

NY Bishop who had $1 million in stolen jewelry sues radio station for $50 million https://lkrlt.org/ny-bishop-who-had-1-million-in-stolen-jewelry-sues-radio-station-for-50-million/ Wed, 09 Nov 2022 19:48:21 +0000 https://lkrlt.org/ny-bishop-who-had-1-million-in-stolen-jewelry-sues-radio-station-for-50-million/ The New York pastor who was robbed at gunpoint mounts a legal battle against a local radio host. Bishop Lamor Whitehead claimed radio host Tarsha Jones lied about him after the incident. Jones said Whitehead was “using the church to hide that old drug money,” according to the lawsuit. Loading Something is loading. Thank you […]]]>
  • The New York pastor who was robbed at gunpoint mounts a legal battle against a local radio host.
  • Bishop Lamor Whitehead claimed radio host Tarsha Jones lied about him after the incident.
  • Jones said Whitehead was “using the church to hide that old drug money,” according to the lawsuit.

The bishop of New York who was robbed at gunpoint during a service that aired live in July, then scrutinized his apparent wealth, is now taking legal action against a local radio station that he says aired charged statements about him.

Bishop Lamor Whitehead was uploaded to his Instagram account in July, in a viral video showing armed assailants disrupting service and stealing around $1 million worth of jewelry. Whitehead has now sued Tarsha Jones, the morning host of 94.7 The Block, in New York County Supreme Court, alleging she spread lies about him after the robbery.

“On or about 9/13/2022, Miss Jones, on her morning radio show on 94.7 The Block, said Bishop Whitehead: is a ‘drug dealer’, ‘using the church to hide this old drug money”; ‘assaulted the young woman’ and ‘[his] the church is where he’s probably still doing his dirty work'” declares the lawsuit.

Whitehead’s attorney called the allegations false and said they “damaged the plaintiff’s reputation as a pastor” and involved criminal activity, affecting his congregation. His lawsuit seeks $50 million in libel damages from Jones and Paramount. Although Paramount was listed as a defendant, The Block is now owned by audio company Audacy.

Jones and The Block did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment. Paramount also did not immediately return a comment.

Whitehead has 1.5 million followers on Instagram, where he regularly goes live, and has already fended off criticism of his opulence and previous legal battles.

One of Whitehead’s parishioners, Pauline Anderson, sued Whitehead in September 2021, alleging she gave him $90,000 to help him buy a house after he told him she had bad credit. According to court documents, she sued him and alleged that he kept the money and lined his pockets for his political campaign.

“And FYI, everything I’ve been given is a Don unless it’s tied to a contract! I was making investments that’s what I do!” Whitehead messaged Anderson, according to an in-suit exhibit.

In the trial of the parishioner, first reported by The City, Anderson’s lawyers alleged that Whitehead first met Anderson after helping his son Rasheed find housing after extensive surgery. Whitehead had served five years in state prison for defrauding others and robbery, according to The City.

Update: This story has been updated to reflect that 94.7 The Block is owned by Audacy.

This wasn’t where Sen. Connie Leyva, D-Chino, expected to be a year ago today.

As the California Citizens Redistricting Commission set to issue new legislative limitsLeyva expected to be reelected on November 8, seeking a third term in the state Senate.

“Last year, at this time, I thought I was going to do one more term in the Senate, that the redistricting was going to happen,” said the union leader turned lawmaker. “My neighborhood would change a bit, but I would keep the core towns that I had. And yeah, that didn’t happen.

Rather than the minor adjustment Leyva expected, the commission cut off the eastern portion of her district, creating a new 22nd Senate District that she would share with Senator Susan Rubio, D-Baldwin Park.

“Above Kellogg’s Hill is not the Inland Empire,” Leyva said.

“I love public service,” she added. “I loved my job in the Senate, but for more than half of my staff, getting to Highway 605 and that area will require at least an hour’s drive a day. …And it really made me think about how much I’ve missed my family for the past eight years.

Running again would have meant two incumbent Democratic senators facing each other, so Leyva stepped aside. She announced her intention to run for the San Bernardino County Board of Supervisors instead, challenging board chairman Curt Hagman in the Fourth Arrondissement.

“I thought my chances were better than they were because there are about 40,000 more registered Democrats” in the district, said Leyva, who before serving in the state Senate had been President of United Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW). ) Local 1428. “And (Hagman) has always been very quiet about his recording.”

Hagman had served as the Republican Party’s Minority Leader in the Assembly before joining the County Board of Supervisors.

“Every weekend we were out there knocking and talking,” she said of the campaign leading up to the June primaries. “I love knocking on doors. I have met so many amazing people. I don’t regret a beat. And then people just didn’t show up to vote.

Hagman defeated Leyva and insurance salesman Larry Wu in the June 7 primary. It was the end of Leyva’s political career, at least for now.

“This is the first month in eight years that I haven’t written a mortgage check or a rent check,” Leyva said in late October. “So that’s pretty cool. Maintaining two places to live isn’t easy. And it’s a lonely job, being (in Sacramento) four days a week. … I’m alone in my apartment, reading. I read a lot, so I was always very prepared, but it was lonely work.

Leyva did not stay long in the labor market. In early October, public television and Inland Empire radio KVCR has announced that it has hired Leyva as the station’s next executive director.. Leyva’s term in the Senate ends on December 5, the same day she starts working at KVCR.

“There are going to be three elements in my work,” Leyva said. “The first is to hire Valley College students to engage them and do internships with KVCR, which I love. I love students, I love education, so it’s gonna be fun. Second, fundraising to ensure KVCR is self-sufficient. And then third, working on content for the radio station, 91.9 FM, for the TV station, channel 24.”

Even though 2022 turned out much differently than expected, Leyva says she is optimistic about the future.

“I’m 55 and I feel like I have a third career,” she said. “I spent twenty years in the labor movement. I have to do eight years in the Senate. Now I can do this. What chance do I have?”

And there’s still a chance voters will see his name on a ballot again someday.

“I did not close my account to run for (state) Superintendent of Public Instruction in 2026,” she said. In March 2021, Leyva has announced plans to seek the position of top educator in the state in 2026. “I love education, I love, I love, I love.”

But in the meantime, Leyva is ready for a political break.

“I haven’t been able to pace myself well in this job,” she said. “And I’ll be honest, I’m tired. You know, not just back and forth. Someone joked and said, ‘We go to every envelope opening.’ And it’s true, but I feel committed: it’s my job as a public official. So it will be nice to be able to work hard, but be home every night. And I think I bring something to (KVCR). I think they will bring me something and it will be a great partnership.

The Raiders’ loss on Sunday officially put their season on life support, but the longer-term disappointment was the players’ body language during the game.

Appearing on 920 AM Raider Nation RadioESPN personality Jason Fitz spoke of a “disconnect” among players he hadn’t seen from the Raiders before.

“I don’t think I’ve ever seen a Raiders team less interested in such a big way than what we saw on Sunday,” Fitz said on the Morning Tailgate with Clay Baker.

“Here’s the most disturbing thing to me about the loss,” Fitz continued. “It’s not that the Raiders lost the football game. It was his body language, it was his defeat, he was watching Derek Carr sitting on the sideline staring into nothingness, Davante Adams staring into nothingness. There was a play in the fourth quarter where Carr was knocked down and none of the offensive linemen even noticed to help him out of the field…I don’t think I’ve ever seen a Raiders team less interested in such a point. significance than what we saw on Sunday.

For what it’s worth, Fitz wasn’t the only one calling out the Raiders’ lack of effort this week.

Raiders radio host (and team employee) JT The Brick had this to say about his daily radio show

“This is a team that, for the first time in the Josh McDaniels era, showed no passion for playing the game and picking either one up. They didn’t show any intensity, they didn’t didn’t seem to fight much and that’s really disappointing.

As for the game where Carr’s teammates didn’t get him back, he was knocked down only once in the fourth quarter against the Saints. His teammates realized he was down, but the rally around their quarterback was certainly uninspiring…

After all the heat the team has been through, it will be interesting to see how they react in Jacksonville on Sunday.

A loss to the lowly Jaguars would wipe out all of the Raiders’ unlikely chances of making the playoffs…and it’s only the first week of November.

A rap song about the Houston Astros sweeping the Yankees in the American League Championship Series continues to be shared across the city.

We first shared Drew’s story earlier this week involving a rap song he created after the Astros’ sweep of the Yankees in the ALCS.

Drew’s song has received tens of thousands of views on Instagram and TikTok.

Since our story aired, the Houston rapper and producer’s song has continued to be shared.

“It was crazy,” Drew said. “So many people showed me so much love. So many people reached out to me. It was fun.”

On Friday, Drew was invited as a guest rapper on 100.3 FM The Bull, a country music radio station in Houston.

“We saw the viral video on TikTok, and we knew we had to do something with Mark,” Erik Smith said.

Smith is a radio host on the “Morning Bullpen”. On weekday mornings, he writes cover lyrics to popular songs with random topics and trending news.

On Friday, he and Drew sang a duet together using a Toby Keith song about the Houston Astros.

“It was Toby Keith, ‘How do you love me now?’ [but we called it] “How do you like H-Town,” Drew said. “It was fun. The support just came in from all directions.”

“The fact that it exploded so quickly and people really embraced it, that makes me really happy,” Smith said. “Today he’s on our show, it’s a country station, [bringing] a rapper on the radio. It’s really cool.”

Drew says he’s a huge Astros fan and is very superstitious. As a result, he says he has no intention of writing any World Series or Phillies raps until the series is over.

Stoke Mandeville Hospital Radio is launching a special three-week fundraiser to celebrate a major 70-year anniversary.

On November 14, the UK singles chart will be 70.

To celebrate this milestone, presenters from the popular radio station are airing six programs dedicated to some of their favorite number one hits.

Additionally, the shows are designed as fundraisers to help generate crucial investment to keep the station on the air.

Martin Kinch and Mark Withey will be in charge of the DJs for these sessions full of nostalgia.

In November 1952, the very first number one on the singles chart was Al Martino’s “Here in my heart”, which stayed at the top for nine weeks.

Martin joined the hospital radio station in January 1979 just weeks after the station launched and presents an old-fashioned show every Monday night at 6 p.m.

Mark joined in 1988 and presents The Aylesbury Chart show every Saturday morning at 9am.

The station is run by a team of volunteers who volunteer their time to entertain patients and hospital staff.

Other weekly programs include an alumni show, Indie, Dance Rock, Blues, Easy Listening, Big Band, Gospel, Talk, Country and Irish, Tech talk, Showbiz news and Sporting previews.

Plus, a regular request show where patients, staff and visitors can request their favorite music for themselves or someone they know at the hospital.

Martin said: ‘When I started the only way people could hear us was through plastic tubes sticking out of the wall in theaters, now thanks to years of fundraising and hard work from our dedicated team, we broadcast on 101.8 FM and also online, we also have our own app which can be downloaded on phones and tablets. »

Stoke Mandeville Hospital Radio is a registered charity and encourages people to donate on its website and share its webpage on social media.

The dates and times for the special shows are between 1 and 4 p.m. on Tuesdays, October 25 and November 1 and 8 and Thursdays, October 27 and November 3 and 10.
