The Public File
The Public File is part of Heartland FM’s license obligations to Ofcom (The Office of Communications), the regulatory body for all broadcasters.
Heartland FM is an independent community radio service with a studio in Pitlochry. It provides 24-hours of broadcasting 7-days a week on 97.5 and 106.6 FM, online at www.HeartlandFM.co.uk with the aim to entertain, educate, inform and encourage local participation. The service is staffed almost entirely by volunteers and is supported almost wholly by the local community.
As well as being a broadcaster, Heartland FM aims to be a community resource, giving new opportunities to those living and working in the area. The name of the service derives from the area served as it has been, at various times in Scotland’s history, at the heart of the nation’s political, cultural and social development and, it contains the geographical centre point of the Scottish mainland. With local people actively involved in every aspect of the service, Heartland FM is able to contribute to life at the heart of Scotland. It is a tool for the community to use in the area’s interests.
