Click to show your support for Saint FM

The team reviving Saint FM is optimistic of being granted a licence within days. An online poll has been set up to gauge the level of support for streaming broadcasts on the internet – with a small annual fee to listen.

The Saint FM team, led by Mrs Julie Thomas, reports being very pleased with support for efforts to revive St Helena’s first independent radio station.

A promotion day was held outside New Horizons centre in Jamestown on Saturday, 16 February 2013, with many people signing up for yearly membership of the organisation.

The aim was partly to educate members of the public face-to-face on how Saint FM community radio would benefit the island.

Membership cost £5 per year for citizens employed on St Helena and £1 for unwaged members.

Despite the frustration of failing to become a registered community charity,there has been lots of progress the decision was taken to become a company limited by guarantee – meaning directors would not be risk heavy personal losses.

A local advert has been published for an assistant station manager to assist with the day-to-day running of the station, which closed abruptly on 21 December 2012.

Negotiations are taking place to reinstate the streaming of the station via the internet.

An online poll has now been set up on the St Helena & Ascension Island Community website to get a better understanding on how overseas listeners feel about paying a yearly membership to help support the organisation.

If the statistics from this vote look favourable, we will publish more information on how people can sign up. 

The poll is open for seven days, until Sunday, 24 February 2013. Find it here.
