Hot Radio continues despite closure news

Community station Hot Radio is still on-air this evening despite announcing its closure would happen at 6pm today.

A single tweet by the station today says “Hot Radio will continue broadcasting whilst we work to find a long term solution for the station. Thank you for your support.”

With no other news from the station, RadioToday can only presume the station has been given a lifeline and is considering options to continue broadcasting.

Last week the station said: “It is with regret that Hot Radio will cease broadcasting on Monday 6th January at 18:00. We would like to thank all our staff, listeners and advertisers for all their support over the last five years.”

Hot Radio was recently given a five year extension to its licence by Ofcom.

    I have never in my life seen a news article where the news organisation “..can only presume”!

    I think the general parlance is something along the lines of “Hot Radio were unavailable for comment”.

    They might have found a lifeline…they might also have over exaggerated their funding problems in order to get people’s attention

    102.8 Hot Radio – the funding has burnt up. Seriously though, are they just running in automation or are they actually live?

Looking for something else?
