Change of Format request for Turkish Gold Radio

Turkish Gold Radio, the north London AM service owned by Panjab Radio London, wants to change the Format of the station.

Instead of broad Turkish music for London’s Turkish and Cypriot community, Panjab wants a service aimed at the Panjabi community to be broadcast in Panjabi and English languages.

Because of the nature of the Format request, Ofcom has published a consultation.

Turkish Gold Radio is a North London station which was licensed and launched in August 1995 as London Turkish Radio. In November 2011 the licence was transferred to Kirmizi Beyaz Kibris Ltd. In April of this year the licence changed control when Panjab Radio London Limited acquired the licence from Kirmizi Beyaz Kibris Ltd and changed the station’s name to Turkish Gold Radio.

If successful, the service will be known as Panjab Radio – an extension of the digital Panjab Radio which has been broadcasting since 2000.

The AM service has a Measured Coverage Area population of 1,915,684 adults (aged 15+), and is primarily focused on Haringey and surrounding London boroughs.

Ofcom recently approved the change of Format for Eagle Extra on AM in Surrey to become a Christian station and is more open to Format changes on AM than FM.
