Community radio licensing update

Community radio groups in Guernsey have a twelve weeks window, running to 26th March, to apply for full-time community radio licences for the first time. See Community Media Association news.

Meanwhile, Ofcom has updated the timetable for inviting community radio licence applications under its third licensing round. A larger than anticipated number of applications were received for Region 5 – the North West along with South and West Yorkshire. West and East Midlands, including Lincolnshire, applications will be invited first half of 2014, and London and the South East in the second half. More info from CMA.
