The other transmitters (on Black Hill near Clun, on Hazler Hill near Church Stretton, and in Mortimer Forest near Ludlow) have a much weaker signal only heard up to about 6 miles (9.7 km) away at most. These three transmitters are for broadcasting to the south of the county, which has a hilly terrain that reduces the effectiveness of FM transmissions.
Colin Young started with the station in 1985 and is the longest serving member of the station. In March 2013 he broadcast his lunchtime programme from a narrowboat on the Llangollen Canal in north Shropshire for a week.
Other Radio Shropshire presenters are Eric Smith, Clare Ashford, Jim Hawkins, Adam Green, Vicki Archer and Ryan Kennedy.
A number of evening and networked programmes, including the weekday Late Night Graham Torrington (broadcast from Birmingham) are simulcast with counterpart BBC Local Radio stations in the Midlands. After closedown, Radio 5 Live programming is simulcast - namely Up All Night, Morning Reports and Wake Up To Money on weekday mornings.
