Nation Radio allowed to play less rock music

Ofcom has agreed another Format change for Nation Radio to change from a rock oriented station to a station playing mostly rock music.

Owner Town and Country Broadcasting says the change request “will help provide clarity to the music format requirement of this service heading forward as we wish to prevent the considerable management time, effort and financial resource which has recently been involved in complaint resolution.”

The station had a Format change earlier this year, which removed the requirement to be a modern rock station targeting 15-34 year olds.

In the official Format change request document, Town and Country continues: “The change will allow us to proceed with programming Nation Radio with confidence and without significant change, whilst preserving the current Format characteristics. Nation will continue to champion local Welsh rock acts such as the Manic Street Preachers and Stereophonics. We are fully committed to developing Nation Radio as radio station that is delivered from Wales and champions the culture of Wales.

Old Format:

A ROCK ORIENTED MUSIC STATION INCLUDING COVERAGE OF LOCAL ARTISTS

New Character of Service:

A MUSIC STATION PLAYING A MAJORITY OF ROCK AND ROCK ORIENTED TRACKS, INCLUDING COVERAGE OF LOCAL ARTISTS.

Ofcom said that the change would not substantially alter the character of service.
