Livewire 1350 (more commonly referred to as simply Livewire) is a student radio station run by students of the University of East Anglia.[1] The station is part of the UEA Media Collective, which consists of Concrete (student newspaper) and UEA:TV.[1]


Livewire first broadcast in the academic year of 1989/1990, making it one of the longest-running student radio stations in the UK. It was launched by John Peel.

In 2016, the station was rebranded with a new logo and website.
