Chorley FM licence extended

Lancashire community radio station Chorley FM has been given a five-year extension to its broadcast licence.

The station, which went on air in November 2006, says it has received confirmation from Ofcom that it can continue on air past November this year when the licence was due to expire.

The station’s Director for Advertising and Training, Steven Normyle, told “The recognition by Ofcom, by granting this licence extension is testament to the continued hard work by everyone involved at the station. We run entirely on the goodwill and dedication of a large team of volunteers and this fantastic news is just what the doctor ordered!”

We’ve previously reported how Chorley FM, like many other community radio stations, was suffering in the current economic climate – in part due to a reduction in the number of public sector grants available to apply for. “It’s no secret, we have found the recent recession and on-going economic situation a difficult period,” said Steven. “But, I am pleased that the work of the board of directors and all our volunteers has made our continued future much more positive. I’m sure that we will be making future announcements about this in the coming few months.”
