DemonFM was founded in 1995 as a society at De Montfort Students’ Union. It was set up by the Communications Officer of the time, Rob Martin. Before gaining a community radio licence in 2009, we broadcast under Restricted Service Licences. This involved month long broadcasts on local FM radio. The first licence broadcast on 106.4FM from 29 September 1995 to 26 October 1995 and over 14 years later, we broadcast our last of 25 RSLs on 30th November 2008.

In spring 2009, thanks to a partnership between De Montfort University and De Montfort Students’ Union, DemonFM were awarded a five year community radio licence, meaning DemonFM would broadcast on 107.5 FM 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. In 2014, DemonFM were awarded a five year extension to their licence and continued to broadcast on FM in Leicester until May 2019.  At present, from this point, DemonFM provides a modern online platform for its listeners.

The station is part of De Montfort Students’ Union’s award-winning Demon Media group which also comprises of The Demon newspaper and Demon TV.
