103 The Eye,
P O Box 103,
Melton Mowbray,
LE13 9AW


103 The Eye is the award-winning community radio station serving Melton Mowbray and the towns and villages within the Vale of Belvoir. Our name comes from the River Eye which flows through Melton.

We broadcast hit music from the past six decades and today, plus specialist programmes, news and local community information, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

We are a non-profit organisation and our role is to inform and entertain the 90,000 people who live or work in Melton, North-East Leicestershire and South Nottinghamshire - plus visitors to our area - as well as playing an active part in the community, providing media training and showcasing local musicians.

We received the Mayor of Melton's Award of Merit 2009 and the Federation of Small Businesses Leicestershire, Northamptonshire and Rutland Award 2010 for Contributions To The Community.

We won the People Development Award in the Melton Times Business Awards 2013, sponsored by Brooksby Melton College,  in recognition of our training and career development achievements.

At the Melton Times Community Awards 2015, we received the Community Champion Award, sponsored by the Melton BID (Business Improvement District), plus the Melton Times Special Recognition Award for achieving 10 years of community broadcasting.

We won the Contribution To The Community Award in the Melton Times Business Awards 2016, in recognition of our support for the local economy and business community. This was sponsored by the Beverley Robinson Academy of Hair, Nails and Beauty.

In 2019, we were awarded funding for a mobile studio / mini-soundstage to expand our outreach work through outside broadcasts, media training and local events. This new facility is part funded by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development and resulted from our successful application via the East Leicestershire LEADER scheme. We were also supported by the Rotary Clubs of Melton Aurora and Melton Belvoir.

Amid the coronavirus pandemic, our work in continuing full-time broadcasting has been recognised by awards from Melton Borough Council and Rutland and Melton MP Alicia Kearns.
