She also looked around the studio and met the volunteers involved in running it.
Mayor Inman said: "It was a real pleasure to formally launch this exciting new station. Ignition Radio will provide entertaining, informative and engaging content for listeners of all ages from within Stockton Borough and beyond.
"The team here at Ignition are passionate and dedicated individuals who have previously done great work in helping our young people to access volunteer opportunities in community media."
