The community in Longbridge is set to be boosted by its own radio programme from Monday.
Axed MG Rover workers and their families will be targeted by a £20,000-plus scheme from Learning and Skills Council (LSC) in Birmingham, Bournville College and two other main partners.
An LSC spokesman in Birmingham said: "We're already doing a lot of work with ex-MG Rover workers. This is another step forward. We hope to give details of job opportunities, news updates and give the community as whole a chance to have a voice."
The programme - called Longbridge & Co - will be broadcast on Aston Villa's digital radio station "The Villan" available on the Sky Digital channel 903.
Broadcasting expertise will come from Birmingham radio veteran Mike Owen, who runs Mike Owen Media, with input from CSV Media, which will carry our interviews in the Longbridge area.
Mr Owen said: "We'll also have a base at the Hollymore Centre in Longbridge. We really want to be as interactive as possible."
The programme will be transmitted live at 10.30am with repeats at 3.30pm and 7.30pm. The Friday programme will be dedicated to phone reaction from anyone affected by the issues.
Bournville College is managing the project, due to run until the end of September. CSV Media --part of a national Government-backed project - is based at the Custard Factory and offers media training free to unwaged applicants.
