Pennine FM returns.. again

Huddersfield radio station Pennine FM will return to full programming on Monday morning, following weeks of non-stop music after the company behind it experienced money troubles.

The station has changed hands, and is now owned by former Home 107.9 presenter Adam Smith, and former Pulse and Galaxy presenter Steve Buck.

Adam Smith [link=]told[/link] the Huddersfield Examiner: "Our team all have connections to Huddersfield. This is a station for Huddersfield and we want to focus on that area.

“Radio stations are struggling like everyone now. But we hope people in the area will get behind us.”

Adam will host the breakfast show, whilst Steve takes over on drivetime, with Paul Clark on mid-mornings.

Quick history: Pennine Radio, which is not connected to the station from Huddersfield, launched in 1975 and re-branded as The Pulse of West Yorkshire in 1991. In 2008, The New Pennine FM was born from the former TLRC station Home 107.9, which originally launched as Huddersfield FM in 1999.
