GLOBAL RADIO will flip Alternative XFM/SCOTLAND to its national Dance format GALAXY this FALL. The rebranding and format change are expected to take place by the end of the year, with XFM continuing to broadcast in the interim.
GLOBAL acquired XFM as part of its purchase of GCAP MEDIA after the station, along with XFM stations in MANCHESTER and SOUTH WALES, were put up for separate sale earlier this year; the MANCHESTER and SCOTLAND XFMs were pulled off the market but the SOUTH WALES outlet was sold to a local group.
