Chrysalis talks to Manchester

Chrysalis have launched a website dedicated to winning the battle for a new Manchester radio station. They are applying for the licence as GMBC – a spin off from London station LBC 97.3.

Chrysalis propose a 24-hour talk station and on the website,, it provides background on the proposal along with features on recent and future events in Manchester such as the Sky Festival and Manchester Pride.

The website states: “We feel that GMBC is a strong contender as Manchester?s newest station. Anyone who understands Manchester also knows that the one thing Mancunians do well is talk. Isn?t it time there was a great commercial radio station which did just that? GMBC will. Clock Tower, Albert Square. GMBC will be all talk. A station you can maybe turn to from your music radio station when you fancy some company. A true 24 hour conversation.”

The Manchester licence was advertised by Ofcom on July 4th, with a closing date in October. The awarding of the licence is expected to take place in January 2007.
