Darren Dorrington, MKFM managing director, says, “We can't wait to get started, MKFM has a strong listener base inside Milton Keynes as well as a large radio and online reach across nearby counties including Northamptonshire, Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire. MKFM is all about Milton Keynes and it's fantastic to be able to promote everything that's great and going on across our city.”
Destination Milton Keynes is the city’s official Destination Management Organisation, tasked with managing the visitor economy of the MK.

Notably, DMK run the annual #LoveMK day, which this year launched on the MKFM Breakfast Show.
CEO Steven Gordon-Wilson said “We’re always looking for new ways to engage with the public to promote Milton Keynes and show off what a vibrant, exciting city it is to visit. I can’t think of a better way than by broadcasting every weekend and talking directly to visitors as they are planning their day in the city. MKFM is such a great asset to the city and we’re delighted to be partnering with them…plus, I’m a bit of a radio nerd and can’t wait to get the headphones on!”
The new Destination MK show will be hosted by Steven Gordon-Wilson, and broadcast on MKFM every Saturday and Sunday from 9am.
