jazzfm dot gone from sky

Guardian Media Group have pulled the plug on the Sky satellite channel broadcasting jazzfm.com. The internet-based station was launched under its current name on 7th June 2005 after London station JAZZ FM re-launched as 102.2 Smooth FM.

The internet streams, the red and blue room will continue as normal.

A spokesperson for GMG Radio told radiotoday.co.uk that whilst jazzfm.com is no longer on Sky, the resources will be ploughed into making the bespoke web service bigger and better: “It has always been first and foremost an internet resource for jazz fans and the radio element is one part of what jazzfm.com offers.”

GMG recently sold the slot on the Yorkshire digital multiplex which carried jazzfm.com, to Leeds United so they can launch a regional football radio station – and reports suggest they will do the same in South Wales where jazzfm.com is also broadcast.
