About THIS Radio
THIS stands for The Hope Institute of Sound and is Liverpool Hope University’s brand new student radio station. We broadcast globally online at thisradio.co.uk and through the THIS Radio Smartphone App.
In 2013, students felt that the previous station, Radio Hope, needed a makeover and enlisted the help of Visiting Professor, BBC Radio Merseyside’s Roger Phillips.
After securing funding, the rebranding process began and in early 2014 a competition to find a new name was launched. A promo video featuring the XFactor Voiceover Man Peter Dickson and 75 name entries later… THIS Radio was born!
The plan is to make THIS the biggest student radio station in the northwest and beyond! The schedule will be packed full of shows that reflect individual interests and music tastes, whilst also providing essential campus, local and student news.
THIS Radio broadcasts mainly from its studios in the Media Centre at Hope Park Campus but also has the capability to outside broadcast from a variety of locations.
