Rock FM says sorry for TX interruptions

Rock FM has issued a statement saying sorry for illegal offensive interception of its radio signal.

Staff at the Bauer Media station say they are aware of the problems, and apologises to anyone that may have been offended.

It’s unknown by at this stage what the content of the broadcast was and how the transmission was intercepted. But a message on the station website says: “These activities are serious criminal offences under the Broadcasting Act 1996, and are punishable on conviction with a prison sentence of up to two years and an unlimited fine.

“We are working with both OFCOM and the police to track down the person or people behind this illegal activity, and are also offering a reward for the first person to provide us with information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible.”

The online notice was posted on Friday (24th February) and we’ll update this story when we find out more from Bauer.
