Following the purchase of Rockscot Ltd, the new Glasgow and West / Central Scotland FM licence will launch as Nation Radio, RadioToday can confirm.
The company won the licence as Rock Radio, and has recently been testing an online stream under the Rock Radio branding, similar to that used when Rock Radio operated on the frequency.
Now, following a change of ownership, Nation Broadcasting will use the same name as its Welsh station, but without sharing any programmes. Nation Radio in Wales has no obligations to play any particular type of music, other than to promote local artists.
Nation Radio has until October to start broadcasting, and Nation’s Managing Director Martin Mumford confirmed to RadioToday yesterday that they will be launching a service from Glasgow in Autumn 2018.
