York Barbican and YO1 Radio have launched a media partnership.

The news was revealed during YO1 Radio’s breakfast show, Griffo in the Morning, today (October 27).

This means big name announcements will come to York Barbican, exclusive interviews with the stars and big competitions will be available on YO1 Radio and online.

Wayne Chadwick, Managing Director of YO1 Radio, which formed a separate news partnership with The Press last month, said: “We are absolutely delighted with the new partnership with York Barbican. This brings many exciting opportunities at a time when YO1 Radio’s audience and awareness are growing and the venue itself has big plans for the future.

He added: “York Barbican is an iconic venue in our city, and we are really looking forward to developing the relationship over the next few years – and moving both the venue and the radio station forward.”

York Barbican general manager Sam Ryder welcomed the news.

He said: “This is a very exciting time for York Barbican as we roll out plans to bring in new musical artists, more stand-up comedy, never-before-seen events to York and strengthen our community engagement.

“There are plenty of announcements to come and this partnership with YO1 Radio reinforces our commitment to bringing the biggest names to York.”
