We are disappointed to announce that tomorrows broadcast of ‘MTFC MATTERS’ (Bath City Vs Stags), could be the last which is broadcast on our current host station, Takeover Radio 106.9FM unless the station can find fresh volunteers to help out in the studio on a match day.
We must stress that the station will continue to broadcast their usual shows and that tomorrow might not be the last game broadcast, however we (MTFC MATTERS) rely on a volunteer to be in the studio to help us broadcast – as of Monday, we will be struggling for a regular producer, with the station being a charity short of money, you can appreciate they are already understaffed.
As we cannot guarantee a producer every week, we feel it would be unfair to promise commentary via Takeover and then be unable to deliver it. This is the reason behind MTFC MATTERS releasing this statement, explaining the situation and appealing for help.
We are appealing to anyone over the age of 21 with a slight interest in radio to help out behind the scenes, those interested should contact Craig via email firstname.lastname@example.org – full training will be given.
Should we be unable to find a producer, either in a shared schedule or full time basis, we will be unable to broadcast on Takeover Radio 106.9FM – Until the situation is sorted, we have taken the decision to remove MTFC MATTERS from the Takeover schedule following Saturday’s game at Bath City, as we feel it would be unfair to promise coverage and be unable to deliver as mentioned above.
In the long term, we do have a ‘Plan B’ in place to continue MTFC MATTERS as an independent show/brand, all will be revealed in due course after we’ve spoken with the relevant parties and received confirmation of our plans.
We would like to thank you for your continued support and understanding during this difficult period, please stick with us via this website and our social networking pages. Please be assured we will work quickly to bring back MTFC MATTERS to air.
We hope you will join us on Takeover for the final time (for the time being hopefully!) tomorrow afternoon from 2PM, Craig Priest & Scott Rogers will have build up followed by full match commentary on Bath City Vs Stags.
Finally, we would like to wish John Wilkinson all the best in his new job which he starts on Monday and thank him for his efforts and dedication to the MTFC MATTERS and Takeover cause throughout the years, most notably his unseen efforts on May 7th when the Stags took on Darlington in the FA Trophy Final at Wembley Stadium.
Thanks again for the support and remember, if anyone can help in anyway – please contact Craig asap – email@example.com
Best Wishes - MTFC MATTERS team.
