More local radio for Wales?

Ofcom is considering advertising up to two new FM commercial radio licences for coverage of most of North and Mid Wales next year, subject to gaining international agreement for the use of the required frequencies.

Ofcom is therefore seeking views as to whether there should be one or two new licences for most of North and Mid Wales. Ofcom is also seeking initial (non-binding) expressions of interest in such licences from potential applicants.

Beyond this, Ofcom has no plans to advertise any further FM local commercial radio licences for the time being in the UK.

The announcement comes on the day Ofcom advertises a new analogue licence to broadcast to South Wales.
