The airwaves are heating up at community radio station Hot Radio with the arrival of Rocket Digital Media Ltd.

Rocket Digital Media Ltd’s Joannah Bishop, Rowan Jackson and Terry Bishop have joined the board of directors at Poole Community Radio Ltd, which holds the licence for Hot Radio.

Joannah Bishop, the managing director at Rocket Digital Media Ltd said, “We are over the moon with this exciting new development. Rocket Digital Media Ltd is a company that is not afraid to expand, develop and grow, and getting on board at Hot Radio is just the next step for us.”

Hot Radio has been serving the people of Poole, Bournemouth and the surrounding areas of Dorset with an eclectic mix of music, local interviews, news and sport for the last six years.

Following a two-year spell at AFC Bournemouth’s Goldsands Stadium, Hot Radio moved to new studios in Poole in February and is now one of only two permanent full service radio stations still broadcasting from the local area.

Joannah said, “With Fire Radio’s recent move to Southampton, Hot Radio is now an even more important asset to the people of Poole, Bournemouth and Christchurch. Not only does it bring the local community together through music, interviews, news and sport, it allows businesses that want to advertise on radio the chance to reach the right target audience, and it gives them a much needed voice within the local area.”

Business partner and finance director, Rowan Jackson added: “I have always been an avid listener of Hot Radio and I think its community focus alongside a consistently strong playlist is a unique and winning formula. This is an exciting time for Hot Radio, and with Joannah at the helm of such a strong, committed team, I predict great things for our future and great sounds for Dorset!”

Joannah has more than 23 years experience of working in radio, including nine years at Capital Radio in London selling and managing radio advertising campaigns, before moving to Reading to launch Reading 107FM for John Madejski.

Hot Radio is already a fantastic station, with a big sound, but our aim now is to expand and develop in order to fulfil the station’s full potential. My focus is to help local businesses talk about their services and give them the chance to market themselves properly during broadcasted interviews that will be both fun and informative.

“We will now be able to offer our clients both digital and radio marketing services, which can only help to strengthen their corporate standing within the local community,” said Joannah.
