Ipswich licence awarded to Town FM

Town FM, wholly-owned by Provincial Radio Ltd and a subsidiary of Tindle Radio Ltd have today won the local radio licence for Ipswich.

The group beat off competition from seven other groups including Tim Schoonmaker’s company and The Radio Business. It will provide a distinctive speech and music led radio station for Ipswich, with independent local news and information.

The licence is for a service to cover the town of Ipswich and the surrounding area which has an adult population (aged 15+) of between 200,000 and 250,000. However, the exact coverage will be determined by the location of the transmission site and other technical characteristics. The proposed frequency (102.0 MHz) is subject to international agreement on radio spectrum usage.

Ofcom expects Town FM to begin broadcasting at the earliest opportunity and no later than two years from this award date.

Ofcom will publish a statement setting out the key determining factors for the award of this licence shortly.

The licence will be issued for a twelve year period.
