UK 1 FM to bid for Manchester

Newly formed group UK 1 FM is to make a bid for the new Manchester analogue FM licence which will be advertised in October.

The indie, which recently announced it was behind the production of the new series of ‘The Tube’ for Channel 4 Radio, said its bid is for a music station aimed at an audience of 25 and above.

Anil Ruia, UK 1 FM’s chairman said: “UK 1 FM will be so much more than a radio station. “We intend for it to be a resource which encourages talent and creativity in the North West.” The deadline is October 5th for the licence which is to be broadcast on 106.1 FM and is for a maximum of 12 years. It is expected to reach an audience of 1,450,000 – 150,000 fewer than the city’s Galaxy 102 FM.
