All Members

This is very important and is key to our continued growth and development as East Lothian’s Local Radio Station.

We are a Community Radio Station and are all volunteers – Team ECFM – We welcome all ages no matter what you live with in life.

All team members are asked to commit to attending a minimum of six Community and / or Fundraising events each year.  At these events you will positively represent East Coast FM – encourage wider listenership and community participatioin, including recruiting new members! Participation at these events is fundamental to sustaining and growing the station and the support of the Team is enormously important.

All Team members are responsible for helping to keep the lights on – so stay informed about station advertising and sponsorship arrangements; this allows you to talk to people about opportunities we offer. Please help by arranging sponsorship for your show where possible.

Most importantly – enjoy being part of East Coast FM and have FUN!
