Edinburgh station changes to Castle FM

A community radio station in Edinburgh is hoping for a fresh start by changing its name.

Leith FM will close at 11pm on Thursday after almost five years to make way for 98.8 Castle FM on Friday 23rd March at 1pm.

A station spokesman told RadioToday.co.uk: “The name change will give the organisation a fresh start after a number of issues within the membership during the early part of Leith FM, this has left a lasting effect in the community.

“Our station has gone from strength to strength and now provide media training to mature students & young people something that us a community service should be providing and with the name change this will help us forget and move on from the past.”

Leith FM covers North Edinburgh and first started broadcasting on 7th May 2007. A new website has also been set up at castlefmscotland.com.
