K-Town FM, had humble beginnings in 2007: the brainchild of a group local Kinglassie (Fife Based former Coal-Mining Village) based young people, with an appetite and vision of launching a broadcasting Radio Station in their locale; this vision became a realty, as a result of research, training, fund-raising and a lot of hard-work.
K-Town FM now has three 28-day RSL broadcast under its belt, a webcasting setup allowing presenters to broadcast online across the world.
The Journey This successful journey was made possible by the tenacity, hard-work and commitment of K-Town’s Staff, Kinglassie Action Group (KAG) and all of the continued efforts of our volunteers and associates over the past 6 years.
Over this period, K-Town has built up a track-record of engaging with a large cross-section our local-community, giving the people of Kinglassie and the surrounding areas a voice, and garnering praise and recognition from all walks of the community; including substantial favourable press coverage and awards and commendations (4 young members of our radio project won a Kingdom FM Local Hero Award - The Original youth group won a YOSCAR – HMIE cited our project as an example of good practice - The station was also a finalist in Creative Fife Awards).
We are committed to maintaining and furthering our existing relationship with the community in a number of ways: through our open-access approach policy; our continued commitment to providing training opportunities to volunteers and content providers of a high standards; through our relationship with local partners (including Fife College and Glenwood High School), business, charities and causes.
Our training and volunteering opportunities have provided avenues for participants to further their skills, develop confidence, and improve employment potential as well as gaining core skills and abilities that have lead to further Education places, previously out of reach.
We have skilled and experienced producers based at K-Town who’ve provided bespoke advertising and audio based promotion material for a range of businesses, organisations and institutions across Fife; we plan to reach out to more businesses and organisation in the near future so we can maintain this symbiotic, mutually advantages relationship.
