Peak FM joins UTV syndication

Ofcom has granted permission to UTV Radio-owned The Pulse in Bradford and Peak FM in North Derbyshire to fully join the northern network of syndicated programmes which are already broadcast across other UTV stations. The Pulse already takes the syndicated output till 1am weekdays.

The majority of off-peak programming on Peak FM and The Pulse is not live and has the minimum amount of local content required at present. In their application for the changes, John Dash, ILR Group Programme Director says: "It is becoming increasingly difficult for us to recruit and retain engaging presenters for this pre-recorded, music-themed programming.

"By introducing the shared programming we’d be raising the standard, the listening enjoyment and most importantly taking all off-peak programming live. This would also focus our programmer on peak-time output where “localness” is the driving force."

UTV introduced a live networked show across seven of their stations in [link=]March[/link] 2006.
