BBC launches 24 hour FM relay in Trinidad

Listeners in Trinidad and Tobago can enjoy for the first time the BBC’s internationally famous radio programmes 24-hours a day, seven days a week with the launch of BBC 98.7 FM. Audiences across both islands now have access to a wider mixture of BBC programmes including some tailored specifically for the Caribbean.

Debbie Ransome, Head of BBC Caribbean, said: “This is our third 24-hour BBC radio station in the Caribbean and our first in Trinidad and Tobago. I am delighted that more of our listeners can hear, for the first time, the full range of BBC programmes in FM quality.”

BBC programmes can also be heard on two BBC FM relays in the Caribbean, BBC 89.1 FM in Antigua and BBC 104 FM in Jamaica.
