FZN Radio is your radio station here at Northumbria. Ever thought about hosting a radio show, making a podcast, writing a blog or working behind the scenes? Well, we can give you all that and more with our society. Our station runs 24/7, 365 days a year, with live shows between 8am-10pm and then recorded content playing overnight. We also help our members produce a wide range of podcasts, which are featured on Spotify, Apple Podcasts and Mixcloud, to name a few. You don't need any experience to be a part of our team, just some excitement for radio, and we will help you with the rest. You will get induction and training sessions to get you up to speed, and it really won't be long until you can go solo on your own, or host a show with your mates or another member.
Not only that, but buying a FZN Membership, also makes you a member of the Student Radio Association, giving you access to monthly training sessions from speakers in mainstream radio, access to workshops and events to help develop your skills and access to the yearly award ceremonies, where you can submit your content to win national awards!
We run a really supportive society and work hard to make the station as inclusive, fun and safe as possible, giving you the best possible radio experience, in a relaxed way. Our studio is based on the Ground Floor of Northumbria Students' Union, City Campus and can be accessed during normal openeing hours. We also have the ability to let you do a show from any other location, providing it has some power and good internet, and we can discuss all this with you too!
Here at FZN, we are a community, and we value our members. We organise social events to reward our members and last year, we went for trips to bowling, Ghetto Golf and even had (early) Christmas Dinner. We would have done a bit more than that, its just a shame Coronavirus came along and made socialising a bit harder lately. Even with the pandemic still having an impact, we promise to offer a safe environment to continue our station, and we will organise social events as soon as restrictions allow us too!

We will be in touch with you as soon as we can. Membership is only £3 a year, so we are one of the cheapest societies to join with so much to offer!
