Ofcom publishes Hull explanation

Ofcom has today published its key determining factors for the award of the FM radio licence for Kingston-upon-Hull to KCFM 99.9.

The Radio Licensing Committee noted, among other factors, the high level of commitment to local speech, the live 24-hour local news and evidence of the station’s parent company’s financial stability.

The committee also commented on the relatively strong demand shown for sports coverage in this area, which KCFM had acknowledged within its Format, most notably in the commitment to a weekday evening football phone-in during the season.
