Ofcom: licenced to fill (forms)
Ofcom is inviting declarations of intent to apply for the FM local commercial radio licence for South East Staffordshire. It’s currently held by Centre Broadcasting Ltd, broadcasting as CN-owned Touch Radio, and is due to expire next year.
The media regulator is also proposing to grant a further licence for the area that will run from May 2010 until the end of 2015. In related news, Ofcom’s received a solitary declaration of intent for the Macclesfield local commercial radio licence from the current licensee, Silk FM Ltd. Consequently, the station has been invited to re-apply for the licence under Ofcom’s 'fast-track' procedure.
Ofcom’s also re-awarded the local FM commercial radio licence for the Havering area to the current licensee, Time 107.5 Ltd. It’s a similar story for the local FM commercial radio licence for the Western Isles which has also been re-awarded, this time to the current licensee, Isles FM Ltd.
