The decision to locate in San Fernando was made by the Chairman of Heritage Radio who on leaving his teaching position at St. John’s College, San Fernando told his students that he was vacating the St. John’s classroom for a national classroom. And for more than 50 years has contributed to programmes that are educational, informative and entertaining.
The station maintains offices in south but in a practical and strategic move has established its main studio in the capital city of Port of Spain.
Indian music, both from India and Trinidad and Tobago dominate the programming format but Heritage Radio celebrates all our festivals and national occasions drawing deeply on the heritage aspects of the events.
Heritage Radio is the leading station in the live coverage of outside broadcasts in all aspects of national and community activities: religious, cultural, economic, political, agricultural, among others.
Amongst the core leadership of Heritage Radio 101.7fm are broadcasting pioneers who have been key players in the evolution of broadcast media from colonial times and into 50 years of Independence.
The Chairman of Heritage Radio 101.7FM is Hans Hanoomansingh who in 2009 received the Award for Media Excellence from the Trinidad and Tobago Publishers and Broadcasters Association and in 2010 The Doctor of Laws degree honoris causa bestowed by the University of the West Indies.
