Montgomeryshire station Radio Hafren closes

Newtown-based Radio Hafren has closed down and removed all of its online presence including website, Twitter and Facebook pages.

Hafren appeared in 2011 from the ashes of Radio Maldwyn in Mid Wales, broadcasting on 756AM and more recently 102.1FM.

The station was locally owned and operated, and released a statement today saying they have consistently been unable to generate enough advertising revenue to cover the station’s operating costs.

The statement says: “It is with great regret that we must announce that Radio Hafren has ceased trading with immediate effect. Despite creating a popular station to serve communities across Mid Wales and the Borders, over the past four years we have consistently been unable to generate enough advertising revenue to cover the station’s operating costs and with no indication that this situation is likely to change in the foreseeable future, the directors have taken the decision that they can no longer maintain the service.

“The directors would like to thank all our staff, advertisers and listeners for their support over the last few years.”
