UK Health Radio Launches Funding Campaign via Indiegogo and continues to Inform Listeners/Readers about a very Real Health Threat - "Don't let World Cup fever become Dengue fever"

London, UK, April 15, 2014 - UK Health Radio's mission is to create a global community of better informed people and to provide the professionals who serve them with a new forum for evidence-based ideas on best practice.

We want to provide a platform for important issues to be aired, worldwide. We want to make a difference on a global scale - however small. We want to give the world a new voice and a new freedom. Online and on air, UKHR promotes wellbeing as being far more important than either great wealth or material possessions.

Our aired programs and website are designed to provide a primary source of the latest ideas in health and fitness, diet and nutrition, illness prevention and cure and current and important health news.

Our magazine Health Triangle Magazine is evidence that we practise what we preach. For example, the editorial in the just published April 2014 issue called "Don't let World Cup fever become Dengue fever". Informing people about a very real health threat and giving experts advice, on how to protect yourself!


By the way the Health Triangle Magazine is online only, so no forests are put at risk to produce it. It goes out to some 250,000 readers every month, without using any petrol, postage, paper or diesel and it is free of charge!

As you can see from the bar-chart (please see attached), well over one third of our listeners are aged between 25 and 34. This is the single biggest group by a significant margin. You can see that 4 out of 5 of our listeners are currently under 55. And only 4% are past the current retirement age for males.

As for gender, you can see from the pie chart that while our profile has a distinct female bias, men are still strongly represented.

24 hours a day, every day, we broadcast programmes primarily for health-conscious adults, as well as progressive healthcare professionals. Anyone with a computer, a tablet, a smart-phone or a new generation car radio can tune in to UKHR, any time, anywhere. The potential could therefore be measured in billions. Being realistic, our audience could one day be millions!

We use both Facebook and Twitter to spread the good news quickly and cost-effectively.

The fact that you are reading this indicates that you are already part of our present to some degree or other. If you would like to play a part in our future, now is your chance!

Please help UKHR remain independent and grow even stronger in its mission to improve the quality of life for listeners on every single continent.

This is what we are planning to do with your donations after giving to charity/people in need (please see attached Pie Chart)

We need a minimum of £200,000 to cover our operational expenses such as setting up our office and studio for live radio. This will also enable us to do the following:

UKHR Studio and Premises:
Right now we have the weekly shows, the monthly e-magazine and a great group of health experts regularly sharing their knowledge experience and passion. Very soon, we want to produce more of our own original broadcast-quality material on a daily basis, including live shows. To do this we need to set up our own new studio. Financial access to the tools and services is where the mainstream commercial stations out-gun new independents like UK Health Radio.

Team of Experts:
This goes hand in hand with the studio and premises and our wish to do live radio. Live radio gives us more opportunities for interactivity and bringing groups of experts together in one room. We can then direct our search for experts in the different fields and it also means having the premises to conduct radio presenter workshops as not all experts are radio savvy.

Job and Training Opportunities:
This also incorporates intern and apprenticeships. Not only the technical side of actually being able to operate a studio but the nitty gritty of what it takes to put a show together before going on-air. The research itself and how much of it is actually needed. Working together with the experts to pinpointing requested subject matter received from our listeners and then concentrating the research on exactly that and therefor improving the quality and relevance of our content.

Please help UKHR remain independent and grow even stronger in its mission to improve the quality of life for listeners on every single continent.
