More FM celebrate new Oxfordshire licence

Long established Oxfordshire radio applicant More FM is celebrating after the radio regulator announced it will licence a new station for the county next year.

More FM has been campaigning for greater radio choice in Oxfordshire for nearly 10 years and their work has finally paid off. Ofcom, the government’s communications industry regulator, announced today that the City Of Oxford and South Oxfordshire will get a new local FM radio station sometime in late 2006.

Applications will have to be submitted next Spring and it is likely that the new station will be on air sometime at the end of 2006. Chairman Barry Giles said ” We are pleased that our long campaign has paid off. We now look forward to getting down to the hard work of preparing our application after 2 trial broadcasts”.

More FM is backed by Newsquest, owners of the Oxford Mail and Town and Country Broadcasting which has existing interests in several local radio licences in the UK.
