About Us


Hot Radio was designed to put the station at the beating heart of the local community.


With Almost all radio stations now transmitting into the area with no local output, the one thing Covid taught us was the importance of the local community.


Hot Radio provides the listener with up-to-date local traffic and travel, local news & information, competitions, and music from the 90s to now.



We offer support to the local community and have over 100 volunteers on a non-profit basis. Covering Bournemouth, Christchurch, Poole, and the rest of Dorset.

We need YOUR help to maintain our funding for our vital community asset. Anything you can give, however small, will help us to keep the doors open, the equipment on, and the music playing.




*“Live & Local” Disclaimer*

“LIVE” during weekdays between 7 am & 9 pm We will be live on air as much as possible by our local volunteer presenters and far exceeding our Ofcom key commitments.

Outside of these times and at weekends there will be some live shows but mainly Non-Stop Music!

“LOCAL” Our Station is located on Ringwood road in Poole, All of our content including local news, weather, and information will be locally focused & Broadcast within the Area of Dorset including the BCP Conurbation, and relevant to the community within those boundaries.
