There are a lot of great opportunities available at Bolton FM; from admin, news reading, fundraising, interviewing, outside broadcasting,graphic design to studio and volunteer support. All of our presenters are volunteers and dedicate anything from one hour up to an entire day towards their voluntary work at our award-winning community radio station. Bolton FM can help you meet new friends, improve confidence, teach you lots of new skills and improve your CV.
