GCap scoops London bomb story

London radio stations owned by GCap Media are claiming they broke the news three hours earlier than their competition about the discovery of a car bomb in Park Lane on Friday. The stations, including Capital 95.8 and Classic FM confirmed the news at 4:45pm.

“Our London UK News Desk team got the news confirmed from police at the scene in Park Lane at 4.45pm, which was then immediately sent out and broadcast across the GCap network of stations up and down the country” GCap said in a statement.

Simon Cliffe, Head of GCap News commented: “I am very proud of the professional and focused manner in which our News teams pulled together on Friday to bring our listeners this important story as it developed. We are a company who has invested money and time into our news service and it shows that we are a credible alternative to other media.

"This a true testament to the efforts we have made in recruiting new talent and training and developing our team in the News & Travel departments to build a team that can react quickly and hold its own against the competition."
