We are devastated to announce our studio and most of our broadcast equipment at Easton Community Centre has been destroyed. The fire broke out during a live broadcast of our Silversound Show at approx 11am this morning – thankfully neither our presenter Tony nor anyone else in the building was injured.
The whole building was evacuated and is currently without power. Initial thoughts are that that the fire was caused by an electrical fault but this is yet to be confirmed. Our thanks go to staff and colleagues in the building and Avon Fire & Rescue Service for handling the situation so well.
Thank you to everybody who has wished us well following the fire that destroyed our main studio this morning. We are overwhelmed by the hundreds of offers of support from our listeners. Our management and tech team have done an unbelievable job of getting the station up and running again. WE ARE NOW BROADCASTING ON FM, DAB & ONLINE and hope to have our regular programming restored as soon as possible. Apologies if we are unable to respond to you individually for the time being. Rest assured we will be in touch as soon as we can.
