Emmerdale star backs "important" launch of Your Harrogate radio

Emmerdale star and Harrogate resident Claire King has backed Your Harrogate radio and said its launch is "so important" for the area. Claire King, best known for her role as Kim Tate on TV soap Emmerdale, has lived in Harrogate all of her life and has relied on local radio for local stories, traffic news and hospitality updates. Claire told Your Harrogate's David Whittle why she values local radio so highly ahead of his show this weekend:

"It's so important to have a local radio station. I am so looking forward to tuning into Your Harrogate because I like local radio - you get to find out what shops are opening, what new places there are, what new restaurants, traffic locally and you're hearing local stories. And of course you play the best music! "I permanently had it tuned in my car and it's what I woke up to in the morning when my alarm went off, so I can't wait to get it back, it's brilliant. Good luck, I'll be tuning in!"
Claire will be appearing as a guest on David Whittle's show this weekend on Your Harrogate as she talks filming Emmerdale during Covid, new safety measures on set, upcoming storylines for Kim Tate and why she loves local radio. Tune into David Whittle's show between 1-4pm on Saturday and Sunday online here, on our app or on your smart speaker. *All photos in this article were safely taken pre-covid.
