Banbury FM is looking to hear from any other online radio station around the UK that want to campaign for the use of an FM licence.
Recent coverage of the station’s plight to ask for a local frequency has resulted in other stations in the same situation getting in touch.
Banbury FM’s Managing Director Andy Green said: “We are concentrating on providing a quality locally focused station for our area. What became apparent from our recent press coverage was how many other stations are in a similar position to us.”
Ofcom has told Mr Green its policy is to prioritise the roll-out of small-scale-DAB, but a case can be put to them as to why a local round of analogue licensing for their specific area should supersede the regulator’s current policy prioritisation.
