Ssh… Takeover launches on Ujima

To celebrate the launch of the Station, the brand new state of the art youth hub in the city centre, Ujima 98FM teamed up with the Creative Youth Network for a special week of youth powered programming. Over the October half term from 1-2pm the Station Starts Here aka the (SSH) Takeover Hour featured interviews, gossip and exclusive news on issues that matter to young Bristol.

Julz the Project Co-ordinator said “The Station is a real step change for the young people of Bristol. Having a one stop world class youth hub at the heart of the city is a great thing for the city. We at Ujima we’re proud to have worked in partnership with the Station to help unlock and unleash young people’s potential through the power of radio. Produced and presented by young people for young people, the SSH Takeover Hour was a great success.”
