Manna FM UK is a listener supported contemporary Christian Music radio station broadcasting 24 hours a day on the internet from an accessible studio in the United Kingdom. The station is an arm of Verity Training and Consultancy Services which delivers access technology training to visually impaired clients.
HOW IT STARTED
Following the birth of Salt FM UK which came about as a result of a privileged encounter between DJ Jhyde and God Almighty on the eve of his 29th birthday - October 30 2000 to be precise, DJ Jhyde decided to strictly adhere to the station’s Urban Contemporary Gospel radio format. As a result, Manna FM UK was born in 2018 to cater for all CCM content and music.
Between that time and April 2020 when Manna FM UK was given a fresh lease of life, DJ Jhyde and his bosom friend and colleague, Shoggy Tosh, with the leading of the Holy Spirit, drew from their Salt FM UK experience to complete the set up.
In keeping with the inclusive culture at Salt FM UK, other visually impaired individuals have the opportunity to broadcast independently from the accessible Manna FM UK studio. Manna FM UK’s listenership has also grown particularly during the Corona Virus pandemic in different countries around the world whilst also receiving award nominations.
Manna FM is driven by a God-given mandate in the book of Deuteronomy 8:3 to feed souls with the Gospel of Jesus Christ through Music and The Word. We envision achieving this by adopting the contemporary Christian music format for the station, a format which appeals to a huge spectrum within and outside the Body of Christ. Manna FM is a PPL-licensed online radio station streaming Christian and inspirational music, as well as a broad range of Christian preaching, teaching, motivational, news and entertainment magazine programmes by notable ministries and our own presenters, to the UK and across the internet to the world.
As well as the mandate to propagate the gospel, we thank God Almighty for an accessible studio which gives us the opportunity to give visually impaired trainees real hands-on broadcasting experience, thereby pulling down all forms of barriers. Regardless of whether they broadcast professionally or as a hobby, we train them in program production, audio editing etc using the latest access technology software and hardware.
