Community station Boundary Sound closes
A community radio station serving Newark-on-Trent in Nottinghamshire has closed, citing “financial circumstances beyond our control” as the reason.
The station was awarded a licence to broadcast on 102.6FM in March 2008 and launched in January 2009.
A short message on the BoundarySound.co.uk website simply says sorry the station regrets the closure, and gives thanks to all advertisers and volunteers which helped the station.
The station closed at 7pm on Thursday 23rd June 2011.
The website reads:
It is with deep regret that we have to announce the closure of Boundary Sound, due to financial circumstances beyond our control. Transmission on 102.6fm ended at 7pm on Thursday 23 June 2011.
We would like to take this opportunity to extend our sincere thanks to all the advertisers and guests who have supported the station since its launch and especially since the station began broadcasting full time in January 2009.
Thanks must also go to the many volunteers who gave so generously of their time and expertise to bring high quality, full-time community radio to Newark and the surrounding villages.
