EXCLUSIVE: Tindle Radio is relaunching 107.2 Win FM as Dream 107.2 just two days after the station's 8th birthday. Win FM has been operating in Winchester since 1999 and was bought by Tindle from The Local Radio Company 13 months ago.
The new station, which launches on Friday morning, shares the same name as other Tindle operations in Chelmsford and Colchester and is expected to share programmes at certain times. Win FM has been operating with TLRC style branding both on and off air since the takeover. Win closed down on Monday at 8am half-way through the breakfast show.
Joss Baker, marketing manager for Tindle Radio south told RadioToday.co.uk: WIN FM was a radio station serving Winchester, and an upgrade to our transmission system means that the signal on 107.2 reaches a much wider area, therefore we have decided to launch a brand new station for central Hampshire called Dream 107.2 with the editorial focus on Eastleigh, Chandlers Ford and Winchester together with the surrounding areas."
