Ofcom explains recent awards

Ofcom have released details as to why the most recent batch of Community Radio licences were awarded.

The RLC was satisfied that each group awarded a licence should be allowed to seek up to 50% of its annual income from the sale of advertising or programme sponsorship if it so wishes, in accordance with section 105(6) BA 1990, and that none of the new services would prejudice unduly the economic viability of any other local service (section 105(3) BA 1990).

The nine awards went to Hope FM (Bournemouth, Dorset), Branch FM (Dewsbury, West Yorkshire), Ipswich Community Radio (Ipswich, Suffolk), Siren FM (Lincoln, Lincolnshire), Diverse FM (Luton, Bedfordshire), Castledown Radio (Salisbury Plain, Wiltshire), Salisbury Plain Army Radio (Salisbury Plain, Wiltshire), Radio Verulam (St. Albans, Hertfordshire) and Calon FM (Wrexham, North East Wales).
