Interview - Your Weekend Matters

Apply Now

Your Weekend Matters is Academy FM's newest local Saturday Breakfast show that focuses on matters in the Folkestone area. It's different from any Breakfast show as the main focus is to promote and inform, as well as entertain.

The program is split into three one hour sections, with the first hour focusing on local matters that listeners email in to, or through our WhatsApp. The second hour focuses on job opportunities in the area. In the past, we have had businesses on the show to promote their job openings and expereinces in their role. Finally, the third hour features local events. In previous programs, we have featured events and interviews with acts from The Leas Cliff Hall, and featured events held at the Folkestone Quarterhouse, The Tower Theatre, Silver Screen Cinema, and Folkestone Music.


To promote your matters, job opportunites, local events, or just anything going on, email and Ross will get back to you on booking an interview.

Most interviews will be booked for Thursdays, unless specified otherwise.
