Time 107.5 returns to air after lightning

Time 107.5FM spent most of Saturday off-air after lightning hit the station’s transmitter on Friday night.

The electrical storm over Havering affected Time’s aerial, which is based in Romford.

At the time, station manager Lorna Waters said: “It’s a one in a million chance. I wish we had won the lottery instead! When we’re back on air, we can play Bohemian Rhapsody, the lyrics seem fitting.”

An announcement was made via Twitter on Saturday evening saying the station would be back on-air at 7pm Saturday, and it returned shortly before.

Time 107.5FM is owned by Lyca Media, which acquired the station along with Sunrise Radio in February 2014 just after the company went into administration. Time was originally known as Active FM when it launched in 1998 then changed its name to Soul City after UKRD bought it.
