Jcom plans return after fine

Community radio station Jcom is planning a come-back later this year, even though the station was ordered to stop broadcasting after losing a High Court libel case.

The case was filed against the station by George Galloway after one of its presenters had implied that the MP is an anti-Semite. The station was fined £15,000 and was ordered to shut down.

But now, a message has appeared on the station's website stating Jcom radio will be back after a short summer break, under new ownership, with plans to be bigger and better than ever.

Radio Jcon also won a community radio licence for Leeds in November 2007.
