The local radio station for Crewe and Nantwich

Powered by Volunteers

The Cat broadcasts on digital radio, on FM and online, 24 hours a day. We are always on the lookout for volunteers with a passion for the local community.

We have an ever-growing team of over 50 volunteers who work together to produce a fully functioning, local community radio station for the people of Crewe, Nantwich, and the surrounding areas.

Opportunities at The Cat range from presenting, helping out behind the scenes, and supporting local events. It’s a great way to learn new skills and develop confidence. Whether it’s for an hour a week or a few hours per day, it’s a great way to indulge in what you love.

Some of our team have worked for the biggest radio brands in the country, from commercial through to national stations. Others bring their own skill set from outside of the radio industry, having never set foot inside a studio before they join us.

Supported by Local Business

Free promotion for community groups,

societies, charities, and not-for-profit organisations

Send us a 30 second script, and our team of volunteers will turn it into a free radio advert.

Your advert will play multiple times a day for up to a month to over 38,000 listeners in Crewe & Nantwich.

It’s a great way to let listeners know about the often undiscovered amazing things that are on offer in our local area.

Use the button below to submit your information and a member of our team will review. We may be in touch to clarify details, and we could even invite you in for an interview on a show!
