Liverpool's City Talk Gets OK To Add Music
May 14, 2009 at 4:59 AM (PT)
BAUER MEDIA has received permission from OFCOM to add music to non-drivetime dayparts at Talk CITY TALK 105.9/LIVERPOOL. The station was granted the right to flip from all-Talk to a format including up to 50% "soft pop" music, with the condition that morning and afternoon-drive remain talk, and the station continue a late-night weeknight talk show and a SATURDAY sports show with live match commentary.
The station cannot simulcast any shows with sister Oldies MAGIC 1548 (which started as CITY TALK in 1989-91) but may do so with sister Top 40 RADIO CITY 96.7.
CITY TALK has been in operation for just over a year.
