Written by Inspire FM Newsdesk on March 23, 2020
Inspire FM reveals its plan to keep positively inspiring the community during unprecedented times.
The Coronavirus pandemic has led to hardship and uncertainty for many.
Inspire FM plans to continue to provide a platform that will keep the community informed, entertained and spiritually connected.
Mohammed Tariq, Station Operations Manager at Inspire FM said: “We have made the decision to begin remote broadcasting, meaning our shows will continue to broadcast live but away from our main studio location.
“We will continue to speak to guests over the phone and by other means to keep our community informed and educated on what’s happening around them.
“I would like to thank our entire family of presenters for their continuous support and commitment during this time.”
Inspire FM has announced changes to its schedule and initiatives to adapt to the current climate.
- The English Seerah will be moving to 8am every morning
- Tafeemul Quran (Urdu) will broadcast at 9am every morning
- Rise and Shine will now be live from 10am till 11am
- All live shows which previously broadcasted at 10am will be moved to 11am
- A new education programme presented by teachers will broadcast at 12pm
- A live daily update programme will broadcast at 1pm providing information on the current situation locally
- Kids Madrassah will broadcast at 2pm with a focus on tajweed

Luton COVID-19 Action Group
Inspire FM has created an action group to co-ordinate efforts locally with partners such as local authorities, emergency services, schools and charities.
This will allow members of the community to get the support they need as well as offer their assistance if they are able to do so.
Hassan Wahba, who is leading the initiative, said: “We have partnered up with many local organisations to help the community get through these tough times.
“We will be ensuring that the community knows exactly what help is available to them and how they can access it.
“We will also be connecting anyone who is able to offer their assistance to these organisations.”
Information on the support available and how to volunteer can be found through the Luton COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Action Group on Facebook or by joining the WhatsApp group chat here.
