Telford FM becomes The Severn
Telford FM is to be renamed as The Severn later this year, and share all output with sister stations The Severn in Shrewsbury and Oswestry.
The move has been approved by Ofcom, and was made possible due to the recent Digital Economy Act.
The station has posted an article on its website with full details of the merger, saying 107.4 Telford FM will change name and become '107.4 The Severn' later this year.
"We will increase the amount of local information and we will still broadcast local news, travel, sport, weather, what’s on etc, but it will cover all of Shropshire not just the individual towns of Telford, Shrewsbury and Oswestry. We will be ”countywide" with news and information from all over Shropshire."
The Severn, Telford FM and neighbouring station The Wyre already share 20 hours a day of programming.
