Sound Radio loses licence

A community radio station in East London which has been off air for two years has lost its licence, according to Ofcom.

The latest Radio Broadcast Update published by the regulator lists the station under the section "Services which have ceased to be licensed (handed back or revoked)".

Sound Radio, which broadcast from Hackney on 1503 AM, was one of the original Access Radio pilot stations, launching in July 2002. It left the air in 2006 pending a move to new premises but has not returned after almost two years. The station's website has not been updated since March.

This latest licence loss takes the number of defunct community radio stations to four, with the station joining Chelmsford Calling, TGR Sound and Radio Cardiff in the ranks of closed stations.
