Erewash Sound SPORT - help shape our future sports coverage

Published on: Saturday, 28th October 2017

Here at Erewash Sound, we're currently reviewing the extent of Sports coverage offered by the radio station, with a view to carrying out some changes.

However, your views count!  Our consultation will be running for the next few weeks, so we’d like to know how much you use or rely on Erewash Sound SPORT, for coverage of borough football, rugby and cricket sides through provision of fixtures, team news, updates and results both during the football season and outside of it, both on-air and on-line including our website and social media presences.

To help collect your views, please answer the following questions.

  1. Do you rely on or use our Saturday afternoon sports programming (2pm to 6pm) for updates on borough sides – a service not offered by any other broadcaster?
  2. Do you rely on or regularly refer to our social media updates (Facebook & Twitter) on borough sides and if so, is this just weekends or weekdays too?
  3. Do you value those services also including references to the likes of Derby County, Nottingham Forest and Notts County for example?
  4. What extent of coverage would you ideally be looking towards Erewash Sound to provide on a Saturday afternoon and on-line? e.g half time and full time updates only, half time and full time updates plus goal flashes, something else?
  5. If you normally seek updates on borough sporting sides, how would you do this if Erewash Sound wasn’t providing them to the same extent as we do now?
  6. Any other comments?

You can send us your comments via social media at,,, via our website ‘Contact Us’ links, or write to Erewash Sound, The Media Centre, 37 Vernon Street, Cotmanhay, Ilkeston. DE7 8PD.
