NEWS AND CURRENT AFFAIRS OUTPUT

A dedicated and professional news service is an integral part of any radio station’s programming mix, regardless of demographic served. Elgin FM therefore views the proper presentation of news and its associated components as integral in the educational and informative growth of our audience.

more broad approach based service. Elgin FM’s news service will include the following elements:
