Vale Radio's weekly show is broadcast between 8pm - 9pm every Thursday, hosted by Will Jenkyns and Steve Twynham.  Businesses in the city are invited to take part in what is becoming one of the 'go to' places for local business news with expert discussion on relevant topics.  Each programme is also available as a Podcast on this page to listen to again and is made available free of charge from iTunes.

Vale Radio is now available on DAB digital radio, online and on the app with a regular *944,200 consumers (*survey results over 13 week period) across York and North Yorkshire.  This presents a significant opportunity for York businesses to feature in the programme and raise their profile within the region and further afield.  Make It York also publicise each weekly programme to its 2000+ Twitter followers and 500+ local contacts.
