The radio station should be informed as early as possible, and preferably before 7.00 am, to allow parents time to make childcare arrangements. Stations informed of school closures are as follows:
- BBC Radio Humberside - Frequency: 95.9 MHz
- Viking Radio (Bauer Radio) - Frequency: FM: 96.9 MHz; DAB:10D; RDS: VIKING
- BBC Radio York - Frequency: 103.7, 95.5, 104.3FM
- Greatest Hits Radio (was KC FM) - Frequency: 99.8 MHz
