Brighton’s Juice 107.2 returns to local ownership

UKRD has sold its shares in Juice Brighton, just 12 months after taking over majority control of the station.

Juice’s parent company, Brighton and Hove Radio Limited has seen UKRD directors William Rogers and Andy Preece resign, along with recently appointed Managing Director Dave Alsybury.

Now the station has new investment and the introduction of a new management team. Station ​founder and director Daniel Nathan told RadioToday:​ “We are thrilled to announce that Juice 107.2 is coming home. ​This is a hugely positive development and a real vote of confidence in the passionately committed team at North Street.”

The new/returning MD is local businessman Laurence Elphick. He says: “We look forward to creating a radio station that truly reflects the people, places and sounds of our unique home town – proudly independent, inclusive, open-minded and irreverent as Brighton deserves!”

Local businessman Mike Holland is on the board, and Ryan Heal, current CEO of local children’s charity Rockinghorse and a director of the radio station for nearly 10 years, now becomes chairman. Ryan added: “​​​​We believe that the city’s only dedicated local radio station should live and breathe Brighton”.
