Star Bristol local hours cut

Star Bristol has been given permission by Ofcom to reduce its number of daily locally-made hours from ten to seven.

Owners Celador said they would provide an enhanced news service in return for the concession.

It brings Star Bristol into line with Celador's other stations, which [link=]last year got permission[/link] to provide 7 hours per day of local programming.

Star Bristol [link=]got approval last month[/link] on a format change, prompting speculation that it was to rebrand as The Breeze, a brand used by the group on the south coast.

The 7 hours of local programmes on weekdays for Star Bristol must include breakfast, while the requirement at the weekend remains as 4 hours locally made on both Saturdays and Sundays.
