About Us

The Crewe and Nantwich Community Radio Society was formed in January 2008 and since then, broadcasting as The Cat, we have gone from strength to strength.

We are your local community broadcast partner, broadcasting from the heart of the community.

Our long term goal is to provide a full time community radio station for Crewe, Nantwich, the surrounding villages and rural areas. This came to fruition on Tuesday 26th February 2014 when Ofcom announced that The Cat Community Radio was the winning bid for the community radio licence in Crewe, Nantwich and the surrounding rural area.

You can now hear us on 107.9 FM locally as well as here, online via a computer or mobile device, on thisisthecat.com

The Society is a not for profit organisation which is open to anyone to join as a member.

Over the past six years we have established ourselves as a local service provider, and continue to build strong links with the community by offering cost effective advertising, training opportunities and a wide selection of music and speech broadcasts. We also broadcast many local events live while giving coverage or raising awareness through our Community Action programming – we are your local community broadcast partner, broadcasting from the heart of our community.
