Originally under the Hull Kingston Radio brand, after having been streaming for nearly a year online, we launched on air on 107.4FM from the KC Lightstream Stadium at 0900 hours on Friday 6th February 2015.
U2’s -‘Even Better Than The Real Thing’ (Perfecto Remix) was the first track played.
Originally launched by a group of entrepreneurs and co-directors of existing enterprises, Hull Kingston Radio grew up in the offices at the grounds of Craven Park in East Hull and has grown into the powerhouse that is now known as 107FM.
After having outgrown the original offices at the East Hull rugby grounds our plans started to evolve the station into what it is today, a station that not only provides sport content but has become a fully-fledged information and entertainment station, a station that aims to include and entertain the population beyond the original starting blocks of the East Hull studios. With this in mind, the name change to Hull’s 107FM became the first logical step taken to signal our intent of being inclusive of the whole of Hull and not just those in the ‘Hull Kingston’ area of the city.
At 0700 hours on 8 August 2022, the station formerly known as Hull Kingston Radio re-launched to be now known as Hull’s 107FM.
Where we are today, we are the same people, the same organisation with the same love for the city. We’ve been broadcasting since 2014 and aim to continue doing so for as long as there is a Hull city to broadcast to!
We are 107FM.
