Two radio stations operated by Anglian Radio have enjoyed a ‘fast-track’ licence renew.
The Beach in Great Yarmouth & Lowestoft along with North Norfolk Radio have an extra 12 years on their respective licences once their current ones expire.
In addition, Ofcom has renewed the licence held by Radio Wyvern Limited, broadcasting as Free Radio Hereford & Worcester.
Other changes in the latest Ofcom update, include City Beat in Belfast changing its DAB mode from stereo to mono, and Kiss FM UK has been removed from the Bournemouth multiplex now that it is available on Digital One.
Fire Radio has been removed from the South Hampshire multiplex under new owners Celador, and Global Radio has replaced XFM London in West Wiltshire with Capital FM London on DAB.
And two radio groups have surrendered their licence this last month. They are K-Town FM in Kinglassie, Fife and Totnes FM in Devon.
