Oxford station OX105 stops broadcasting

East Oxford community radio station OX105 has ceased broadcasting today after what appears to be a last minute decision to end programming.

The station’s transmitter is turned off, the online stream is down and the shutters are closed on the studio premises.

Evening presenter Ian Pinnell took the above photo of the station’s base today, and blogged about the subject.

He says: “I believe the station has closed due to people taking advantage of the good nature of some of its members, particularly of the managing director, both financially, and overall in general.

“These, I believe, are not new problems, but have been ongoing for a number of years, I’m told by others involved with the station. Certain members of the team not pulling together when needed.”

Discussion on Media UK highlighted a number of tweets which were made by the station around midday, some confirming the station has been taken off the air, others blaiming the Chairman.

Here’s a screengrab of the tweets captured by James Cridland:

Ian went on to say: “The station, I thought, was becoming successful. We had a big event in the centre of Oxford, and the advertisers were coming in. It is a sad loss to the community of Oxford, as well as those involved.”
