Ofcom explain Barrow decision

Ofcom have announced why they awarded the Barrow-in-Furness licence to Abbey FM.

Abbey FM won against competition from Barrow Local Radio because, according to Ofcom, the group’s business plan was considered to demonstrate a good understanding of the local market and of the issues that the new station may face, and the ability to save costs through resource-sharing with nearby stations was felt to further enhance the strength of Abbey FM’s financial proposition.

Ofcom was also impressed with the amount of locally produced programming they promised, and with the backing of two large radio groups, was confident Abbey FM could maintain the service throughout the 12 year licence.
