Four groups have applied to Ofcom to run the new commercial radio station for Preston, Leyland and Chorley. They are Central Lancashire Radio, plcfm, Proud FM and UFM. All applicants propose a local service broadcasting local news and familar music from the last 5 decades.

Two of the applicants have operated RSL broadcasts in the area, Central Lancashire Radio (in the Chorley area) and plcfm (formerly known known as Ribble FM in Preston).
