Gateway 97.8 is remaining on air during the coronavirus outbreak, with a special 6pm Coronavirus Update every evening and additional coverage throughout the day. All shows are still on air as usual.

The Radio Club youth group is becoming digital, with children still on air every Saturday morning via a conference call link.

The station has also set up a digital coursework scheme, to make sure Radio Club members can continue their Level 1 and Level 2 NCFE courses in Radio Production.

The station has established a Coronavirus page on the website, to bring listeners the most up to date local news.
