Scotland’s first radio station for health and wellbeing set to launch

Scotland’s first health and wellbeing radio station is set to launch on January 1, 2020

There are less than 10 days to go till the launch of Scotland’s first internet radio station for health and wellbeing, which will broadcast across the UK, USA and North America.

Wellbeing Radio, which has been developed in Fife, will go live on 12 noon on Wednesday, 1 January 2020, with a packed schedule of programmes designed to promote physical, mental and emotional wellbeing.

Listeners in Scotland, the UK and across the pond will be able to tune in 24 hours a day to hear health and wellbeing advice from leading experts, talk shows and discussions, interviews, ancient yogic wisdom, meditation and relaxation techniques, mindful children’s stories and more.

The new station will broadcast across the UK, USA and Canada and feature a line-up of carefully selected presenters from around the world who are experts in their chosen fields. They include clinical psychologist Dr Sarah Madigan, who will present a weekly Loved Up on Life programme, and French-born Radical Rest Yogi Sophie Leone, who is an expert in rest and relaxation.

The station’s flagship programme will be Wake Up the Right Way, a breakfast show presented by Zen yoga teacher and Wellbeing Radio founder Scott Hutchison-McDade and friends between 7 and 9am every weekday. The show will be preceded by a half-hour Rise & Shine meditation between 6.30 and 7am.

Other scheduled programmes include Music for the MindThe Beauty Detective and Nature Therapy & Beyond.

Co-founder and broadcasting director Scott Hutchison-McDade said: “I’m excited to present Scotland’s first multimedia platform for health and wellbeing. After nearly a year in the making, I’m really pleased to see it come to fruition.

“After launching Scotland’s first healing sound therapy to combine silent disco technology with binaural beats earlier this year, it seems like a natural progression.

“Please check out the website (launching January 1) for lots of insightful health and wellbeing articles and don’t forget to tune in on New Year’s Day.”

Listeners will be able to instruct Alexa to “Play Wellbeing Radio” and can listen online, on-the-go or on demand from January 1 by visiting the website.
