About the organiser

gateway-radio-logo - ...our local radio GATEWAY 97.8fm

GATEWAY 97.8 is the local community radio station for Basildon.

The station reflects the interests, tastes, backgrounds, cares and concerns of Basildon's wonderfully vibrant communities. It introduces new ideas and new music, but never forgets to keep a caring and critical eye on the activities of politicians, local and national wherever they affect us.

Gateway's excellent community work benefitting young people and charities was recognised by the Prime Minister in 2011 with a Big Society Award - the station was the first broadcaster in the UK to receive one.
