Original Bristol sold

Original 106.5 in Bristol has been bought by Tomahawk Radio, a new radio group set up by former Original management team Jonathan Arendt and Richard Johnson.

The pair bought Original 106 in Aberdeen just over a fortnight ago. It means the only station now owned by Canwest is Original 106 on the south coast.

The takeover, which is effective immediately, was completed this morning. The station will continue to operate under licence under the brand name Original 106.5.

Managing Director Richard Johnson told Radio Today: “Bristol is a great city, and we have had a fantastic first year here. We have taken over a station with a great team and are really looking forward to growing audience and business.”
