Join The Bear
If you want to come and join The Bear family, then please do get in touch. We are always looking for new members to present shows, help with marketing and social media, produce audio and various other jobs.
Please note the station is run by amateurs for fun, there is no money to be made by working for us (in fact there’s a membership fee). But we can absolutely give you a creative outlet, experience and a lot of fun.
If you want to present please make sure you have the equipment you need, as we have no studios of our own. The most basic setup you need is a computer, microphone, headphones and a solid internet connection.
If you do message us please make sure you provide details of any relevant experience you may have. We read all submissions, and will get back to you as soon as possible.
Please note there are currently two different types of membership for individuals:
On-Air Membership: For those who appear on The Bear as a Presenter/DJ. (£20 annual membership fee)
Off-Air Membership; For those who help behind the scenes. (£10 annual membership fee)
Your membership fee goes towards keeping the radio station on air, gives you voting rights at our Station General Meetings, meaning you get a say in how The Bear is run, and gets you on the mailing list for the monthly insider email.
On-Air Membership gets you the additional benefits of your own @thebear.live email address, free promotional material for your show (both audio and graphical) and any production assistance we can offer.
If your application is successful we will email you with details of how to make your membership payments. If you have any queries just let us know
