Peak Radio Set To Hit Derbyshire’s Digital Airwaves

A new digital radio station will hit Derbyshire’s air waves next month with the aim of bringing the much-missed local radio feel back to the region.

Peak Radio will serve the community through providing daily news, weather and travel, along with music from the 90’s through to today’s biggest songs.

The station is the brainchild of Derbyshire lads Joseph Turton, Andrew Haslam & Daniel Sides-Pearson, who deeply care about issues and events taking place in the area, as well as creating a relevant, fresh, new regional radio service for Derbyshire.

The best local presenters around have been sourced for the new station, while young talent is also taking centre stage.

Derbyshire based presenters Laura Summers and Becky Hayes have been snapped up to host the Peak Radio Breakfast Show, along with James Hilton to host the new Weekend Breakfast Show.

Andrew Haslam will host a Drive Show weekdays from 3pm, with Sophie Duncan taking over Evenings with new music, alternative, house and dance session afterwards.

We’re proud to announce that Ben Jameson (LazyB) will be the voice of Derbyshire nights with The Late Night Chillout Show.

Laura Summers of the Peak Radio Breakfast Show said: “I am proud to live in the beautiful county of Derbyshire and the fact I get to host the Peak Radio Breakfast Show with one of my best friends whom I met through radio is insane!

“We are both so excited and super-proud of being a female duo on a Breakfast show! We can’t wait to get started!!”

Becky Hayes added: “This last year has been so hard for everyone with what’s going on in the world, so personally I can’t wait to get on, give some light relief and have some fun! Oh and get out of the house!”


Peak Radio will hit the airwaves on DAB and online reaching the people of the county with great music, local news and local content.

The station is a brand new marketing channel for your business, allowing you to speak to the customers you want to speak to. Get your commercial heard by the people that matter the most.


Peak Radio’s broadcast area will cover the majority of Derbyshire, including Derby, Ashbourne, Alfreton, Ripley, Buxton, Long Eaton, Belper, Duffield, Matlock and Bakewell. It will also stretch across borders to encourage listeners into the county, such as Loughborough, Tamworth, Burton upon Trent and Nottingham. Although the focus is on Derbyshire, this will provide opportunities for Derbyshire businesses to be heard further afield too, without having to pay regional advertising costs. With a potential listenership of 750,000 people, Peak Radio will be focusing on 18-54 year olds, playing music from the 90s to today.

Peak Radio is set to launch on Monday 5th April and will be available on DAB, Online, on your Smart Speaker and on your go to Radio App.
