L107 hands licence back to Ofcom

Lanarkshire station L107 has switched off its transmitters and handed back its licence to Ofcom, RadioToday.co.uk can exclusively reveal.

Earlier we told you the station had been contacted by Ofcom following nearly two weeks of failing to broadcast programmes within its format.

A spokesman for Ofcom told RadioToday.co.uk: "The Lanarkshire local commercial radio licence was this morning handed back to Ofcom by MD John Prendergast on behalf of L107 FM Ltd. They planned to cease broadcasting at mid-day today, so should already be off the air now."

The Scottish station had prompted rumours on forums following periods of dead air over the last few weeks, followed by the appearance of non-stop music and adverts with no presenters or local news.

Presenter Scottie McClue told today's Daily Record that the station's transmitter had been 'hijacked' and replaced with an mp3 player, and that staff were turning up at the studios powerless to do anything.
