Leeds gets Jewish station
Ofcom has awarded a five year radio licence to one community group today, for a station to serve the Jewish community in Leeds. Radio JCom will broadcast on medium wave with information and programmes about the various interests of the community and offer radio training for volunteers.
Community radio services typically cover a small geographical area and are provided on a not-for-profit basis focusing on the delivery of specific social benefits to enrich a particular geographical community or a community of interest.
A statement setting out the main determining factors for the award of the community radio licence to Radio JCom will be available shortly from the Ofcom website.
