Grantham Hospital’s Radio Witham will be featured on a BBC programme tonight.

The station will be featured on BBC One’s Inside Out East Midlands at 7.30pm as part of its feature about hospital Radio. The programme asks why hospital radio is still going strong, 90 years after the first broadcast to bed-bound patients.

Howard Newport, of Radio Witham, said: “Mark Dennison from BBC Radio Nottingham visited the station in July to “relaunch” the station, along with Mayor Cllr Ian Selby. The team from the BBC spent around two hours with us, and recorded an interview with myself and the mayor.”
