Kick sold to Andover Sound

Kick FM has been bought by neighbouring Andover Sound Limited, a company controlled by Ian Axton, and in which Tindle Radio has a 20 per cent holding.

The station launched in the year 2000 as an independent station and was bought by Tindle Radio in 2006.

Brian Doel, Chairman of the Tindle Radio Group, said "I'm delighted that West Berkshire Radio Limited is now part of Andover Sound. I know that listeners and advertisers will benefit hugely from the expertise that Ian Axton and his team will bring to the airwaves of West Berkshire."

Ian Axton, 39, is a former Managing Director of Spire FM in Salisbury. Last year he launched Andover Sound, the independent station for North West Hampshire.

Ian said "West Berkshire is a special place and it deserves a special radio station. I'm looking forward to building on what's already been achieved and taking the station to an exciting new level."
