Room for another KMFM in Ashford

KMFM Folkestone and Dover is leaving the area it broadcasts to, and joining sister KMFM stations in Ashford.

Ashford is already home to a KMFM service for the town, along with Canterbury's KMFM which [link=]gained approval[/link] to co-locate there 14 months ago.
Moving KMFM Folkestone and Dover will not alter the output of the station, says Group Programming Controller Steve Fountain: "While the base of our programming would change it will not have any effect on either of the stations output and we would continue to provide a high degree of local content relevant to the area."
Ofcom said, in approving the Format change and co-location: "We believe the request is one that fits well with the considerations for co-location as set out in the original public consultation and that listeners should not be disenfranchised by the co-location arrangement."
KMFM Ashford and KMFM Folkestone and Dover already share all programming except Breakfast, and the sales team would remain in the area sharing facilities with KM Group newspapers.
