Yet-to-launch station Andover FM is set to become the southern regional hub of Tindle Radio after Ofcom agreed to allow the group to co-locate five of its stations there. Kick FM, Kestrel FM, Delta FM, Win FM and the new Andover FM will all broadcast from the town.
In a submission to Ofcom, published on the regulator's website, the group argued that the cultural affinity of the five TSAs was sufficient to justify the co-location, saying that residents regularly travel between the affected areas for work and leisure. Tindle also stated that the co-location would enable the provision of 24-hour local news on each of the five broadcasts and that the savings made would enable investment in more local speech content.
