Ofcom awards Shrewsbury licence

Shrewsbury FM, owned by MNA Broadcasting Limited has won the battle for a new local radio station serving Shrewsbury and Oswestry.

Applications were received from four bidders by the closing date of 7 November 2005, all proposing a local service of music and information. Owners MNA also run other stations nearby including Telford FM and The Wyre. Shrewsbury FM is a working title and the station is expected to re-name for the launch later this year.

The licence is for a service to cover the towns of Shrewsbury and Oswestry, in Shropshire, and the surrounding area, which has an adult population (aged 15+) of between 100,000 and 120,000. However, the exact coverage will be determined by the location of the transmission site and other technical characteristics.

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.
