Two new directors join the Wycombe Sound Board

Wycombe Sound is delighted to welcome Luke Hashman and Liam Gates to the Board of Directors, joining as Programme Director and Managing Director respectively.

This week, Luke and Liam were asked to join the Board of Directors as Luke Davis stepped down from his Programme Director role and Chris Phillips became Chairman.

Both have been long-time contributors to the station, both on and off air, having joined in 2013 during Wycombe Sound’s first pilot broadcast.

As the new Managing Director of Wycombe Sound, I am thrilled to embark on this journey with our amazing team of volunteers. Having been involved with the station for over 10 years since before our full-time license, this is a huge privilege. We’ve built a legacy of serving our community through the airwaves, and now, we’re tuning into the future with fresh ideas and a continued unwavering commitment to High Wycombe & the surrounding area.

Together, we’ll continue to amplify the voices of our community and spin the dial towards an exciting new chapter.

Managing Director – Liam Gates

I’m very excited to be taking on this new role at Wycombe Sound. The station is a huge part of my life, and having been here since day one, I’ve gained numerous opportunities, experiences and friendships over almost eleven years. The station is a pillar of the local community, so it will be a privilege to work alongside my fellow volunteers to oversee all our output across the week. I can’t wait to get started!

Programme Director – Luke Hashman

Wycombe Sound is preparing for its election coverage, the return of the football season and a range of new and exciting shows and projects. Once again, the station thanks listeners, advertisers and supporters for their continued input.
