Tina is also on the committee for Bradford Community Broadcasting (BCB 96.7 fm to 106.6 fm) and has a two hour programme on Thursday called the Afternoon Stretch with Alan Keeling from 2-4 pm. She is always looking for guests to talk about interesting things they have done or are planning to do or about difficulties faced in general regarding community issues.

Tina also has a slot for writers only, which runs monthly on a Tuesday evening from 6.30 pm to 7.00 pm. It is called the Scribe Slot and is not for well published folk, but a step on the ladder to fame with the backing of the Bradford Writers Circle name behind it.
