Ipswich Community Media

IO Radio


IO Radio is a fresh and new online radio station based in the Ipswich area, with a brand new studio built for the 21st Century. IO radio was set up to serve the local community by providing access and training in radio for local people. We are a team of volunteers and freelancers working with local groups and volunteer projects. We focus on giving the community a voice and offer volunteers the opportunity to develop their skills and help make a difference on a local level. We have a varied and engaging schedule that aims to represent what’s going on in Ipswich

IO offers training courses focusing on specific areas of radio production and other transferable skills including interview techniques, teamworking and all technical aspects. These are free to attend, but places are limited. IO is a not for profit voluntary organisation that depends on volunteers to realise its potential.

“This is the best place I have ever had the privilege of working and I’ve only just started here. Everyone treats you like family, you are excited to go in every day and work with your team. You are taught invaluable skills about business & various media platforms. Your voice is always heard, your skills are noticed and broadened to your full potential.” Chloe

“Simply the best place I have worked at, even if you’re having a bad day you will leave with a smile on your face. Lovely, happy, genuine people. And let’s be honest who wouldn’t want to have their OWN radio show?!?! I wish IO all the success in the world” Megan

“IO is a truly awesome place with something for everybody. There is such variation in the shows and all the DJs and presenters have genuine talent, as do the people behind the mic. Combined that with the on going community projects the station runs it really is a special place!” Joe
