Established by a former Radio Wave Director with ex-Radio Wave presenters making up most of the schedule, Coastal DAB broadcasts to Blackpool & surrounding areas.

Paula Davies, former Radio Wave Station Director, left Radio Wave when the station was rebranded, but when digital radio came to Blackpool in the summer of 2022, she jumped at the chance of setting up Coastal Radio DAB.

Paula said: “I understand the value of being truly local, because the people and businesses really matter to me. We live and breathe The Fylde Coast, so we know what matters to our listeners. We aim to provide great local content including news, weather, traffic & events information and to be entertained with music from the last 5 decades!

“Being local and having the connection to our listeners is the reason I’ve set up Coastal Radio DAB in the first place. We are here to fill the gap that Radio Wave left when it ceased all local content.”

Coastal DAB is now available across the ITV Granada region on UK Radio Portal.
