Spectrum wants to change Format to all talk
London AM station Spectrum Radio has applied to Ofcom for a major change in Format and would like to be known as Spectrum Talk.
It wants to move from a service aimed at various different ethnic minority communities in London to an all-speech service for Londoners focussing on “business and finance, sport, entertainment, current affairs and essential information”.
Spectrum Radio originally launched in June 1990 and has a Measured Coverage Area of 10,433,014 adults (aged 15+). It currently identifies itself as Europe’s Leading Ethnic Radio Group.
Ofcom has opened a consultation on the request, which closes at 5pm on Thursday 10 August 2017.
