Written by CastleSound on May 6, 2022
Stirling Community Media SCIO have been awarded funding to support the development of their new app.
In 2017, 46% of all radio listening was done through a digital platform such as on a TV or online, reaching almost 90% of adults in the UK.
Stirling Community Media SCIO were awarded £1400 from Stirling Council to assist with the development of a new mobile app, helping many more listeners to tune into the community radio station from mobile phones and digital devices which are app enabled.
Following a three month testing period the app went live on 1 April.
Stirling Community Media SCIO chairperson, Bruce Tait commented:
“We are very grateful to Stirling Council for this vital funding. The more ways in which we can reach listeners in the Stirlingshire area, the more we can connect the radio station with the communities we serve”
