Date set for Oneword closure
UPDATED: The date has been set for the closure of UBC Media and Channel 4 digital talk station. Oneword will cease broadcasting today, Friday 11th January, ending the current run of repeats since live programmes ended late last year.
Commenting on the closure, Simon Cole, CEO of UBC said: "With the sale in June 2007 of Classic Gold for £3.95 million and the closure of Oneword Radio, UBC has now completed the implementation of a strategy that sees us 100% focussed as a radio services company".
An announcement on the Oneword website says: "Unfortunately Oneword will no longer be broadcasting from Saturday 12th January.
"We are genuinely grateful to all our listeners for their loyal and continued support over the last eight years. We wish you a very happy 2008."
UBC said in a statement that the station will close 'today' (Friday) so we expect the turn-off point will be midnight tonight.
