About CVFM

Community Voice FM (CVFM) Ltd is not for profit media organisation based in Middlesbrough: we operate a grassroots-led radio station. 104.5 CVFM Radio started broadcasting in August 2009 with the aim to serving the diverse population of Middlesbrough and the surrounding areas.

We offer a broad spectrum of radio programmes and deliver community focused projects which benefit the local community. The radio station was established to offer a platform for the diverse communities of Middlesbrough with the population of over 142,000. We offer a wide array of programmes for all sections of the community and for all musical tastes, with an average weekly listener base of approximately 14,000 – 16,000.


The station has firmly established itself as alternative local choice by developing an excellent reputation for delivering a diverse range of programmes broadcasting on 104.5FM in the Middlesbrough area, online via this website, and on your smart phones via numerous radio player apps which can be found on the Play store or App Store.


The station caters for mainstream and multi-ethnic communities of Middlesbrough, having developed radio programmes which cater for numerous musical tastes, cultures and interests. Asides from serving the niche musical tastes, the station also broadcasts programmes in a number of different languages including Urdu, Punjabi, Farsi(Persian), French, Sinhala (Sri Lanka), Czech and Mandingo (Gambia) which caters for Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic communities.


104.5 CVFM Radio aims to bring communities together through music, sports, culture, discussion and debates by utilising the power of radio. This work is demonstrated by our commitment, support and sponsorship of flagship events in Middlesbrough’s Calendar e.g. Middlesbrough Mela, The Intro Festival, Middlesbrough Literary Festival, Volunteer Star Awards, Tees Valley BME Achievement Awards and Ramadan Celebrations & Charity Event.


The radio station is predominantly operated by an enthusiastic and committed team of volunteers, supported by a small team of staff who coordinate volunteer activity and deliver community focused projects and training opportunities, which are designed to meet the aims and core commitments of the station.

In the past the radio station has delivered a number of high profile and awarding winning projects, which have supported hundreds people with training, employability, volunteering and capacity building opportunities.
We are always looking to add to our pool of volunteers so if you can spare a few hours a week to support a local and rewarding initiative we would love to hear from you. Our programme schedule is fairly fluid which means we can experiment with new music and programme formats, so if you have a good idea for a new show then we would love to hear from you (full training will be provided).

Remember: this is your platform so if you are a local Musician, Band, Entertainer, Poet, Comedian or have another talent which you want the rest of Middlesbrough and Tees Valley to know about, then we are here for you.
