COMMUNITY radio station Express FM has a new home.

The station is relocating from Highbury College, in Arundel Street, to broadcast from the University of Portsmouth’s Eldon Building, strengthening links with the university.

Professor Catherine Harper said: ‘It is wonderful to have a live broadcast operation on campus which will offer our students and staff professional engagement with the media.

‘Embedding a radio station in our institution provides an excellent opportunity for students to take part in career-enhancing activities, which is a key part of our new strategy.’

Express FM is one of the longest-running community stations in the UK and has just been granted its third five-year licence.

Its mission is to showcase talent, celebrate success, raise aspirations and give local people a voice.

The not-for-profit station broadcasts 45 different shows a week, hosted mainly by volunteers.
