Lochbroom FM in trouble for not broadcasting
The commercial radio service for Ullapool, Lochbroom FM, has been found in breach of its licence for not providing a service.
Ofcom was informed that the station has not been broadcasting since April 2018, therefore decided it is not delivering a service in accordance with its published Format.
The regulator asked the Licensee about the breach, but did not get a reply from the station.
Lochbroom FM has, since 2012, rebroadcast the programmes of neighbouring Two Lochs Radio on its FM frequencies, with occasional local opt-outs. The station’s stream has fallen silent and there is no activity on social media or recent updates to its website.
Ofcom said: In this case, Lochbroom FM has failed to provide the service since April 2018 and is therefore in breach of conditions 2(1) and 2(4) of its licence.”
