Real Radio Wales Proposes Changing Regional To National Service
June 21, 2010 at 4:22 AM (PT)
GMG RADIO has applied to U.K. radio regulator OFCOM to change its REAL RADIO WALES operation from separate services for the existing AC REAL RADIO SOUTH WALES and its coming REAL RADIO NORTH AND MID-WALES to one unified national programming service, reports RADIO TODAY. T
he proposal follows OFCOM's APRIL 15th declaration that regional stations in WALES can "request to stop providing separate local programming for each region, provided they commit to providing an all-WALES version of the service on local or regional DAB multiplexes in every part of WALES where they exist."
Comments on the proposal are due by JULY 16th.
