Durham breakfast leaves town

Star Radio in the north east has been given Ofcom approval to present Craig Andrews' Durham breakfast show from its Darlington studios.

This means all content 24 hours a day will be broadcast from outside the transmission area.

In asking for the change, programming boss Mark Reason told Ofcom: "Only some 18 miles separate the present studio centres in Darlington and Durham City and the Darlington studios are just one and a half miles outside the southern edge of the Durham MCA.

"The character of the service will remain unchanged."

In approving the move, the regulator said: "The request is not regarded as a substantial change to the character of service as it is believed the change perceived by listeners will not be great, and that their expectations will be met."
