THIS Radio is Liverpool Hope University’s brand new student radio station and stands for The Hope Institute of Sound.
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!
Along with a new unique name, THIS Radio has a completely new vibrant image and a contemporary sound. Plus, a dynamic responsive website and smartphone application that fits in with the lifestyles of our listeners.
The plan is to make THIS the biggest student radio station in the northwest and beyond! We want the schedule to be packed full of shows that reflect individual interests and music tastes, whilst also providing essential campus, local and student news.
