Radio By Students, For Students

Want to help York make incredible Award Winning radio? Want to join one of the best, largest and most diverse societies university has to offer? Whether you to hear your voice played out on the airwaves, break the biggest news stories as they happen, play with the state-of-the-art studios and computer systems, or just plain have fun, then URY is the place for you.

What Can I Do?

Of course, everyone wants to be on the radio! Presenting is as easy as baking a cake (disclaimer: I can't bake cakes) and you don't have to sign up at Freshers' Fair or at the start of a term to get your very own show! Take a look at our schedule. If you can see a gap, there's no reason you couldn't fill it.

As well as just presenting, there are 11 Teams of students that make content and keep URY running. You can see more about them at the bottom of this page.

We're always out and about on campus, especially during Freshers':

How Do I Get A Show?

Getting your own show is easy as pie! First thing is to make sure you are a paid member, you can do this through YUSU.

Once you have paid, log in to MyRadio and set up an account, from there you will be able to sign up to training! Under "Get On Air", click "Get Studio Trained" and take your pick of training sessions you can attend, click join and you are good to go! If there aren't any slots available, email our Training Co-ordinator at During training, we will show you how to use the studio and how to apply for a show. Shows are typically one hour long, scheduled once a week. Easy peasy.
