Cheshire FM is a community radio station serving the towns of Northwich, Middlewich and Winsford in the English county of Cheshire, from its studios in Winsford, and can be heard on 92.5 FM.

Background

Cheshire FM launched at 8:00 a.m. on March 30, 2007. The station broadcasts a mix of adult contemporary music and presenter chat, with hourly national news bulletins from Sky Radio News. Its aim is to provide an area of over 100,000 residents with a local service similar to that of many other local stations in the UK but, as the area can already receive many other 'out-of-area' stations, the idea to is to bring a focus to the Mid-Cheshire towns, something the other stations have previously been unable to do.

On April 8, 2006, Cheshire FM operated a three week Restricted Service Licence broadcast on 87.7 FM, which was based at a temporary studio in London Road in the centre of Northwich.

Cheshire FM's five-year licence was granted in May 2006, and it was announced some months later that full-time operations would be based at Cheshire County Council's 'Verdin Exchange' building in Winsford. Cheshire FM's transmitter site is near the village of Moulton, atop an elevator shaft at one of the area's numerous salt mines.

In March 2008, Cheshire FM was named Cheshire County Council's Start-up Business of the Year in the Vale Royal Small Business Awards.
