Bauer announces switchover date for new Liverpool stations
Licence changes to Bauer's Liverpool stations are to take effect from December 7th.
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.
Owen Ryan, group content director for Bauer City Network, said: “We’re all gearing up for the 7th December and are really looking forward to revealing our new look stations and line-ups.
"We’re strengthening our position in the market place with our two biggest stations broadcasting on FM, the newly-launched Radio City 3, now bringing the very latest current hit music to the city and the re-energised Radio City Talk bringing the very best local sport, news, talk and rock hits to Liverpool.”
