The Cat catches five year Ofcom licence

Community radio group The Cat has been awarded a five year licence by Ofcom, to serve Nantwich and Crewe in Cheshire.

The single award has been made by the regulator just five months after the closing date for the Region 5 – classified as west and south Yorkshire, Humberside and north west England.

The Cat will provide “a community radio service for Nantwich, Crewe and surrounding villages in Cheshire”. Ofcom’s Broadcast Licensing Committee said it was satisfied that the new service would not prejudice unduly the economic viability of any other local service.

At the BLC meeting on February 11th, one other group was considered but not awarded a licence – RedShift Radio in Crewe.

Almost 40 applications were submitted in October last year, including 11 proposing AM services.
