Behind the scenes at Radio Plus is a team who keep the station running along with all the other local projects we're involved in.
In January 2008, the organisation that now holds the licence for Radio Plus (Coventry & Warwickshire Media Community) submitted an application to the media regulator, Ofcom, for a Community Radio Licence to run a new community radio station for Coventry. We were awarded the licence in July 2008 and had until Christmas 2010 to begin broadcasting. We started our live broadcasts on December 20th 2010. We're now on our 2nd five-year licence period, taking us to 2020 and we're already into our 7th year of being on air continuously 24/7 365 days per year!
CWMC is the trading arm of the charity which runs Radio Plus, called Coventry Spirit (Radio), a registered charity. The target audience for Radio Plus is 16-35 year olds across Coventry and it was youth groups across the city that got involved and named us Radio Plus.

Our mission is to use the media to positively influence people in Coventry to love and follow Jesus.
We're interested in you, we want to know what makes you tick and we want to see Coventry prosper. With relevant music, conversation and entertainment, we want to support those trying to make Coventry a great place to live, work and play. We want to see our city changing for the better.
Radio Plus is on air 24/7 with the best in new up and coming local musical talent. We talk about things that really matter to you!
In 2016, Radio Plus was awarded a Queen's Award for Voluntary Service, the equivalent of an MBE from Her Majesty The Queen, for services to the Voluntary Sector.
