Q92FM will be combined into the existing radio operations of CanWest MediaWorks." CanWest Mediaworks (UK) Limited recently won a UK licence in the Solent area to provide an Adult Alternative Radio album-led station.

The Solent licence was the first to be awarded by Ofcom to a non-UK owned company, and could be the start of overseas operators buying into and winning UK radio licences.
