YCR to join Minster in York

Ofcom has today announced that Yorkshire Coast Radio (YCR) stations currently based in Bridlington and Scarborough respectively, and Harrogate's Stray FM have been given permission to relocate their broadcast studios to the Minster FM building in York.

The move, which has yet to be confirmed, would see four services broadcasting from the one building. Though, The Local Radio Company (TLRC), who made the request, has insisted that if it the relocation does go through then they will be maintaining offices and news input facilities in Harrogate and Scarborough.

In it's ruling, Ofcom stated that: "All four stations have clear links, both cultural and political and the request to house them in York is not unexpected. The three small stations which will co-locate are close together and a presence is to be maintained in both Harrogate and Scarborough, which leaves the arrangement as one that fits well with Ofcom’s co-location policy."
