Cardiff radio station closes

Radio Cardiff has become the latest station to cease broadcasting, just 10 months after launching as a community radio station in the Welsh capital.

The station blames a delay in funding from the Welsh Assembly Government and Cardiff County Council for the closure.

The group is not alone, as [link=https://radiotoday.co.uk/news.php?extend.3513.4]less than a month ago[/link], London station TGR was forced to close due to tough financial conditions. Previously, a community radio station in Chelmsford also closed down due to lack of funds.

Radio Cardiff began broadcasting with a five year Ofcom licence on October 8th 2007, and featured reggae, soul, jazz, funk and house music. It also provided local news and interviews.
