This Friday sees the first radio show dedicated to business for the North Northamptonshire business community.

The show, which will be aired on Rushden based Beat Route Radio, will be hosted by Ian Griffiths where he will be chatting to NNBN Director Simon Cox for an hour live on air talking business and what’s happening locally.

In the first of a series of monthly shows, local businesses will be able to tune in to listen to local business news, support available for businesses, up and coming business events and business tips and ideas across an hour.

NNBN Director Simon Cox said “It’s key that businesses are kept up to date with what’s happening locally and what support there is available. The new monthly radio show will help local businesses to understand what’s going on and I would like to thank Ian and the team at Beat Route Radio for airing the show. It’s an exciting but nervy time for businesses at present. We are seeing businesses open back up and gaining confidence since the pandemic measures have been relaxed but there is always the cautionary feeling that “what if” we go back into strict measures. This show will help local businesses to understand what’s going on locally and signpost them to people who can assist.”

Founder of Beat Route Radio Ian said “Beat Route Radio is excited to invite Simon to join us adding another dimension to our programming schedule that will give local independent businesses the opportunity to gain valuable information regarding all aspects of running a business.
