Citybeat in Belfast joins Q radio network

Seven months after buying Citybeat Belfast from CN Group, Q Radio Network has rebranded the station as Q.

The Belfast station joins stations in North West, Tyrone & Fermanagh, Mid Ulster, Mid Antrim, North Coast and The Mournes which already broadcast as Q. A full marketing launch is planned over the next few weeks.

The network provides two breakfast shows – one for Belfast and one for the rest of the Q network, then each of the seven stations has a local mid-morning show from 10am till 1pm. All stations then join together for the rest of the day but with split news, adverts and local information.

Citybeat launched on 96.7 FM on 1 October 1996, after six years known as Belfast Community Radio, or BCR. From 5 April 2007, Citybeat became available on 102.5FM for North Belfast, Newtownabbey and Carrickfergus, then on 2 November 2007, Citybeat launched a third FM transmitter also broadcasting on 102.5FM for Bangor.
