Repair work puts 5 live off-air in the North
BBC Radio 5 live’s AM transmitter at Moorside Edge is going off-air during 10am to 4pm for at least the next two weeks.
Essential engineering work needs to be carried out on the transmitter between the 4th and 15th September 2017 which will result in some shutdowns of 909KHz between 10-4pm until the work is completed.
This work is to carry out essential stay greasing affecting Radio 5 Live only, and are weather dependent, so engineers cannot accurately say exactly when this will happen.
The BBC has apologised for any disruption to service but informs listeners that the station will continue to be available on DAB and online.
