London’s premier youth-led radio station – Reprezent – has just launched in Essex with a year long broadcast training scheme for 13 – 24 year olds. We are really excited about the opportunities this is going to offer young people across the county for campaigning issues in their own way.

The 10 commissioning partners in Essex, who now jointly commission the Essex-wide Emotional Wellbeing and Mental Health Service (EWMHS) for children and young people, have supported the launch of Reprezent Essex in order to create new opportunities for engaging with young people on important issues.

Reprezent: The Sound of Young Essex 

Reprezent FM is the UK’s only radio station presented by young people under the age of 25. Born and broadcasting in London since 2011, the station has now launched in Essex since October 2016.

Via our training programmes, our DJs and presenters develop to work in the music industry, run their own club nights, and produce their own music, making the station both highly diverse and always relevant.

Reprezent Essex provides platforms and opportunities for young adults to grow and often to major industry success. We have three new training centres, a touring Reprezent Roadshow and dedicated nights and events all over Essex.

Alongside playing the latest in up and coming artists, and dropping insightful interviews from our favorite existing and emerging stars, we partner with brands and cultural institutions to produce award-winning youth content. We actively campaign on a range of issues that affect young people today, and importantly, provide an unbiased platform to be heard.

  • London’s premier youth-led radio station launches in Essex
  • Year Long Broadcast Training Scheme For 13 – 24 year olds
