New radio station for Ipswich comes on-air

Ipswich 102, the new local radio station for Ipswich, launched on DAB Digital Radio across Suffolk today (1st August) in preparation for taking over Town 102’s FM frequency on the 19th October.

Ipswich 102 has also revealed that former SGR-FM and Town 102 programmer Paul Morris has joined the station as Station Manager.

Paul has lived and worked in Suffolk for many years, starting his career at SGR FM in 1995.

Paul says: “I’ve always believed that local radio for Ipswich should be exactly that, for Ipswich and made here in Ipswich. As I know only too well, Suffolk people are fiercely loyal to their area and I’m very grateful that so many listeners, advertisers and stakeholders have given us their support. Our work on Ipswich 102 has just started, but I can’t wait to get back on the air with a vibrant, engaging, entertaining and above all local station for the Ipswich area”.

Ipswich 102 Chairman Michael Betton says; “We’re excited to be on-air on DAB Digital Radio today and start our broadcast journey. We’re also very pleased to welcome Paul to the Ipswich 102 team to spearhead the station’s launch and make us the No 1 station for the town.”
