How to complain:
If you are unhappy with anything you hear on Radio Exe, in the first instance, please contact:
Radio Exe, 1 Oak Tree Place, Matford Business Park, Exeter EX2 8WA.
We will do our utmost to resolve your complaint or dispute in a timely manner.
We always take complaints seriously. The station manager always listens to the offending output. And we always respond. It is the nature of live broadcasting that we sometimes get things wrong. When we do, we apologise. We take further action depending on the seriousness of the content. But sometimes we don't agree with the complainant, even after reviewing the situation. In that eventuality, listeners can then choose to raise the issue to the independent chairman of Radio Exe, who oversees the station's management but is not involved on a day-to-day basis. Or the complaint could be taken up with Ofcom, using this link: http://stakeholders.ofcom.org.uk/tell-us/specific-programme-epg
Complaints about commercials should be made to the Advertising Standards Authority. Radio Exe tries to ensure all commercials conform to the British Code of Advertising Practice. We subscribe to the Radio Advertising Copy Clearance service when preparing commercials that could be contentious.

The Station Format:
Formats have replaced the 'Promise of Performance' as one of the main tools by which a radio station's character of service is set and monitored.
Stations are monitored and regulated to a large degree by the spirit of the output rather than using mathematical equations.
Radio Exe commits to providing a full local service dedicated to listeners in Exeter and the surrounding area, combining a wide variety of classic and contemporary music together with a high-quality distinctive range off speech and information features focused on matters of local interest and relevance.
The station aims to exceed the minimum commitments that Ofcom dictates. So we generally broadcast double the required hours of local programming we must produce. We give more airtime to local news stories in our measured coverage area than all other station in the same area.
Events & Charities policy:
Radio Exe is committed to providing coverage for local charities. We do this through on-air "what's ons", by attending events, and on our website. We have covered events for Devon Air Ambulance Trust, Dream-a-Way, Families for Children, Nello's Longest Table, Age UK Exeter, WESC, Exeter Leukaemia Fund, among others.
