Voice of Liverpool launches

Liverpool's newest radio station has launched at 6am today. Journalist Liam Blyth was the first live voice on the City Talk 105.9, with Phil Easton and Kim Hughes welcoming listeners to their first breakfast show five minutes later.

Terry Smith, Chairman of Radio City and now City Talk said people will find the station "very different to anything they've heard before," after a long countdown sequence.

The station voice said the words "For the very first time, this is City Talk broadcasting to Merseyside" – a similar sentence to how Radio City launched over 30 years ago. Imaging on the station has been custom-created by Music4.

City Talk is broadcasting live from St John's Beacon – 450ft above Liverpool – along with sister stations Magic 1548 and Radio City 96.7. The licence was won by Emap in 2006 fighting off heavy competition from the likes of GMG, Chrysalis, UTV Radio, Canwest and Absolute Radio.
