HWD Radio at Dewsbury Hospital is celebrating its 60th anniversary.

A hospital radio station is on the lookout for a passionate sports co-presenter to keep a weekly show in good health.

The Heavy Woollen District’s hospital radio station is seeking a volunteer to help bring local sport to life on Saturday afternoons.

The Sportstime show – on the air between 2pm and 5pm every Saturday – covers the latest local, national and international action and looks ahead to the coming week.

Presenter Mike Ireland said: “We’re looking for someone who is passionate about local sport and providing a great service to the patients and staff at the hospital.

“I’m after someone who is reliable and can commit themselves on a weekly basis to help make Sportstime a must listen.”

The role would be for a researcher and co-presenter to collate scores, statistics and information during the programme who can talk on air about local sport.

Volunteers do not need any previous experience of working on the radio – they just have to know how to use a computer.

HWD Hospital Radio was built on its sport commentaries more than 60 years ago and broadcasts from purpose-built studios at Dewsbury and District Hospital.

If you are interested in volunteering, contact Mike at with your name, telephone number and a bit about yourself.
