Endeavour Radio is the local community radio station covering the area of Boston, Lincolnshire in England. Previously the station had been called Endeavour Online and Stump Radio, set up as a collaboration between Blackfriars Arts Centre and Tulip Radio. The station's name comes from HMS Endeavour, a ship of historical importance to Boston.

Endeavour Radio has broadcast intermittently on FM with a community licence, and full time on the Internet[1] Until mid-2011, the studios were located in the Boston Enterprise Centre at Wyberton Fen, before moving to Church Street. After a short return to the Boston Enterprise Centre, the station moved into a custom built studio.[citation needed]

Since 2010 Endeavour Radio has compered local events such as Boston Christmas lights switch-on,[2] Boston Christmas Market, Boston Marketplace re-opening, Boston Music Festival, Butterfly Hospice bike ride, Boston Jubilee Picnic in the Park, Boston Standard's 100th anniversary, Boston Olympic Torch relay, Sibsey village fete and Boston Community Showcase, and has commentated on Boston United FC games.[citation needed]

The station was affected by the 2013 floods, but stayed on air as long as technically possible, providing public information and official advice.

Endeavour Radio's media projects have involved a local youth magazine, audio packages for businesses, media courses, a local online business directory and live events.[citation needed]
