LIONHEART Radio is staying on air for another five years, after being granted an extension by regulator Ofcom.
The Alnwick-based community radio station started broadcasting in 2007 and its five-year licence was due to expire next March.
But it will now remain in place until 2017, after Lionheart committed to maintain its social gain objectives for the next five years.
The station has launched an appeal for more volunteers.
Anyone who can help is asked to call Lionheart on 01665 602299.
