Insanity Radio is ran by a team of enthusiastic volunteers called the Media Production Board. They work with the rest of the station’s volunteers, the Students’ Union, and Royal Holloway University of London to make sure Insanity is fulfilling the best of its potential. The Board meets weekly to discuss the station’s operation and direction. This meeting is chaired by the the Station Manager and Assistant Station Manager. There is, of course encouraged, a lot of overlap in board positions. For more information, see our About page.
Board meetings are open to all members of the station – everyone is encouraged to attend if they want to see how to the station operates.
Your first point-of-call is the person who best-fits the mini-profiles below. If you’re uncertain on who to contact, the Head of Operations is the best bet. Be sure to change insanity to insanityradio.com – we’ve done that to stop all of the spam.
