We’re a multi-cultural community radio station, for the people,
run by the people of Coventry & Warwickshire.
The station broadcasts from the heart of Hillfields in Coventry – an area with many social and economic problems, but also a rich & diverse ethnic heart and community feel.
From the Irish in the 1950’s, to the West Indian Community in the 1960’s to the current African, East European and Middle Eastern migrants, Hillfields (and the WATCH Community Centre where the station is based) has always been the first place for new migrants to visit.
The area has a rich and diverse ethnic makeup and this is illustrated in the rich and diverse shows and presenters here at Hillz.
The future for Hillz is looking good. We have just secured our community radio license for another 5 years from OFCOM and just secured vital funding from Children In Need for our Hillz Young People project, to continue doing the great Youth Work in the community.
With the re-brand and professional development of the marketing and commercial side of Hillz, we are looking to raise the profile, increase listener numbers and create even more exciting shows, with real emphasis in 2014 on citizen journalism and documentation of social issues facing all communities in Coventry.
Hillz is a truly alternative radio station to the tired, mainstream radio in the City.
