Sunshine Worcester closes

Sunshine Radio's Worcestershire service on 1530 AM has closed down this afternoon, has learnt.

Sister stations sharing the same name in Ludlow and Herefordshire/Monmouthshire are unaffected by the move.

The station is closing because Classic Hits Radio Ltd, its previous owner, is being dissolved before the new owners had time to transfer the licence. The station was previous operated by Laser Broadcasting which has also gone into administration.

A spokesperson for Sunshine Radio confirmed stations in Ludlow and Herefordshire/Monmouthshire will continue as normal, and it was unfortunate that a legal and technical issue meant the Worcester service had to close.

It is hoped all staff at the station will be re-deployed elsewhere within the group.
