Preston FM to rebrand as City Beat Preston

Lancashire community radio station Preston FM is changing its name and re-launching on May 4th.

Preston FM will be known as City Beat Preston and is moving to a new broadcast and media centre in Preston Guild Hall. It will also introduce a new sound, logo and schedule.

Darren Ofsarnie, marketing director, told RadioToday: “This is a great step for the station and the presenters involved. We have some fantastic shows on the station and we hope by adding new shows, this will only complement our output. Also with our new studio location, the station will be even more accessible to our community, giving them to chance to come see our studios and interact with the station.

“City Beat Preston will continue to offer free training sessions in association with Lancashire adult learning for people wanting to get involved with the station.”



The relaunch comes after the station suspended live programmes in January to work out the future of the station.

The station, on 103.2FM, is not connected with former CN Group station CityBeat in Belfast which was recently sold to Q Radio Network in Northern Ireland. It was awarded a licence by Ofcom in 2008.
