Listeners to Bob FM are getting the expected Heart is Coming audio imaging ahead of the station changing names on Friday.
Bob FM will become part of the Heart network from 4pm on Friday 31st May, taking John Darin’s show from Heart Hertfordshire in Watford.
The enlarged Heart Hertfordshire, owned by Communicorp and using programmes by Global, will take the new national breakfast show with Jamie Theakston and Amanda Holden when it launches on Monday, 3rd June.
Drive will be shared on the Bob FM frequencies 106.7 / 106.9 and former Mercury 96.6 station too.
Bob FM covers the north of Hertfordshire including Stevenage, Hertford, Knebworth, Hitchin and Welwyn Garden City and first launched in 2001 as Hertbeat FM. It rebranded as Jack FM in May 2010, before becoming Bob FM nearly 4 years later due to licensing issues which would have prevented the station using the Jack brand on DAB.
It was bought by Communicorp in April.
