Hot Radio five-year extension from Ofcom
Community station Hot Radio, which covers Poole and Bournemouth, has been given a five-year licence extension by the regulator.
The station was formerly known as The Bay 102.8FM, but rebranded as Hot Radio last February.
Hot Radio station manager, Claire Edwards said, “Hot Radio has come a long way in the last 18 months and I’m delighted that Ofcom has given us the opportunity to continue our work in serving the community of Poole and Bournemouth for the next five years.
“Volunteers remain at the heart of Hot Radio’s output and they deserve great credit for giving up their time to transform the station into one the local community can be proud of,” she added.
Hot Radio is ‘owned’ by Bournemouth AFC and is based in the football club’s stadium.
