Radio Orla, the new online information and entertainment Polish community radio station aimed at the UK and Ireland, have announced the appointment of Joanna Figlak as news editor and studio manager. The station have also announced that its studio will be in the heart of the Polish community in Ealing, west London.
On making the announcements George Matlock, Radio Orla’s editor-in-chief and managing director, said: “I am personally delighted about hiring Joanna Figlak as news editor. Joanna brings 12 years of radio experience to her role, as a broadcaster in Poland and in the UK. She has been sorely missed from the airwaves in recent months and now we are bringing her back with a daily show on Radio Orla. We are very excited about our new studios in the heart of the Polish community we serve and look forward to the company of distinguished guests when we go live, which will be very soon indeed.”
The station’s new studio will have state-of-the-art technology and a lay-out which allows for live broadcasting as well as off-air show recordings for playback at other times. Radio Orla has identified a considerable need and opportunity for an Anglo-Polish radio station engaged with its community that can relate Polish issues to British and Irish authorities, as well as to Poles back in Poland thinking of coming to the UK and Ireland.
