JACK Radio introduces The Wellness Hour



8 October 2019, Oxford: National digital radio station JACK Radio, which launched a little under a year ago and already delivers more than 125,000 listeners each week, has added a unique new programme to its weekly mix which will focus on all things wellness.

The Wellness Hour, which launches this Thursday 10 October at 12pm, will cover topics including health and fitness, mindfulness, wellness retreats, mental health, finding happiness, goal setting, building confidence and more; hosted by award-winning journalist – and JACK Radio Programme Director – Belinda Doyle, with regular contributors including Life Coach Marianna Clarke, Science & Medical Presenter Elizabeth Healey, Counsellor Francesca Rogers and Mindfulness Specialist, Amy Malloy.


The show can be heard every Thursday from 12pm to 1pm, with a repeat on Sunday mornings from 6am to 7am. In what is thought to be a first for British radio, each show will also include a weekly mindful moment, during which Amy Malloy – who is a trained an accredited meditation instructor – will take listeners through a specific mindfulness technique, with a result that is similar to a guided meditation. 


Belinda Doyle, Programme Director for JACK Radio, said: “Wellness has been a hot topic for quite some time so it’s actually quite surprising that there’s not really anything dedicated to the subject already on British radio. The Wellness Hour brings something completely new and fresh to JACK Radio and we hope will excite our existing listeners, while also offering appeal to a new audience who haven’t yet heard what we’ve got to offer.”


The launch of JACK Radio was announced late last year and made headlines with its world-first-broadcast radio format, which provides an exclusive platform for women in music and creates a completely unique listening experience. The station has since been developing its content to include clever initiatives which focus on areas such as lifestyle and sport, including the recently announced Tracey Cox Show which looks at sex and relationships and is hosted by world-renowned expert Tracey Cox, award-winning female-fronted football show The Offside Rule, and a women’s sports news bulletin.


The station sits alongside its more established sibling, Union JACK; a national digital radio station which celebrates the best of British music and comedy. Both stations are the brainchild of the team who created Absolute Radio and who are also behind the highly successful and multi-award-winning JACKfm – the most awarded local radio brand in UK radio history – JACK 2 Hits and JACK 3 Chill.
