By Thomas Carter
De Montfort University student radio station Demon FM have announced a groundbreaking all-night General Election show for Thursday(DEC12), providing political coverage throughout the evening for nine hours.
Set to take place live from the on-campus studio this week, the show will be on air from 10pm to 7am, ensuring listeners are kept up to date with all the events from this year’s General Election.
The broadcast will feature a range of panelists, as well as streaming live to the official vote count for Leicester, delivering updates and getting reactions from local voters.
Tom Fair, who is the Deputy Station Manager for Demon FM, said: “It’s a fantastic opportunity for us, and the biggest thing we have done this year.
“We’re lucky enough to be allowed in the count on Thursday night, so standing shoulder-to-shoulder with the big broadcasters like BBC and Sky is a huge reputation boost for the station!”
Alongside this, the Demon Magazine (another strand of the student-run Demon Media Group) will be running its first live blog, which will provide a timeline for people if they are unable to listen on radio.
Masters student and Demon FM Producer Jack Vines also commented on the anticipation for the upcoming show, saying: “It is vital for us to deliver entertaining but impartial coverage of the results.
“The all-night election show is great as it shows that young people are still interested in politics.”
