Coventry’s 96.2 Touch fm has submitted its application for the renewal of its Coventry licence with Ofcom and declares “Our future is bright”.
The new licence would allow Coventry’s 96.2 Touch fm to continue broadcasting until 2021, but faces competition from Panjab Radio, which has also submitted a bid.
Panjab proposes a locally orientated Punjabi music and information station for the Coventry area, whilst Touch offers a full service, locally-oriented music and information station for Coventry and its communities.
Steve Orchard Chief executive of Quidem comments: “Our application is based on the premise of high quality local content and a popular music mix of Classic Hits and the Best of Today. It is Quidem’s approach to radio that saw Coventry’s 96.2 Touch fm win the accolade of “Commercial Radio Station of the Year” in 2011.
We have received wonderful support for our application from Coventry’s leading institutions, and we have really enjoyed the process of describing to Ofcom our vision for the future as part of the re-application process. We very much look forward to offering all sections of the Coventry community a listening choice.
96.2 Touch fm is in excellent health – our future looks very bright indeed.”
