Celador Dismisses Report It 'Lost Interest' In Edinburgh Application

CELADOR is denying a report by the GLASGOW HERALD that it will shelve its plans for a new EDINBURGH, SCOTLAND radio station to replace the defunct TALK 107. The radio and television production company aired an AC format called COAST 107 on the frequency last year for 28 days under OFCOM's Restricted Service License and the HERALD quotes an OFCOM spokesman as calling the chances of reopening the 107 FM allocation for new station bids "dead in the water."
But a CELADOR spokesperson told RADIO TODAY that while the company is not actively pursuing OFCOM for a permanent license, it has not ruled out applying in the future, saying, "We have no indication that the EDINBURGH license will be re-advertised. Should it be, we will consider how to proceed at that time."
