January 7, 2009 at 5:20 AM (PT)
UTV has officially turned in the license for TALK107/EDINBURGH, SCOTLAND after shutting the station down on DECEMBER 24th. THE SCOTSMAN reports that regulatory agency OFCOM has not decided whether to open the allocation up for bids for a new station to replace TALK107.
20 staffers lost their jobs (11 fulltime, 9 part-time) in the shutdown, which followed a failed attempt by UTV to sell the station.
