London FM radio station closes

Another community radio station is to close due to lack of funds.

Link FM in the London Borough of Havering, which won a licence to broadcast on 92.2fm in 2006, will close at midday Monday 28th June.

Presenter Nicki Cook told the [link=]Romford Recorder[/link] it was a painful decision to close, saying: "This hasn't been easy. We have 60 volunteers – some who have been with us since inception – and we've all put a lot of hours, blood, sweat and tears into this station."

The newspaper reports the station had applied for 30 grants, all of which were turned down.

Link FM operated almost a dozen RSL licences before being granted a full time community licence and has almost 60 volunteers.
