Media regulator, Ofcom, granted approval last month to a request to change Radio City 2’s format be altered from a “classic soft pop music-led service” to “rock hits with news, local sport and information programming.”

City Talk’s “speech and soft pop-led music programme”, meanwhile, was given permission to become “a classical soft pop music-led service.”

As a result, Bauer today announced that Radio City 2 will move from 1548AM to 105.9FM on December 7th, with Radio City Talk moving to AM, with a new format of Rock, Sport and Talk.
