Regulator Ofcom awards Revival licence extension

UK broadcasting and telecoms regulator Ofcom (Office of Communications) has awarded Revival Radio Limited, trading as Revival FM, an extension to its broadcasting licence to transmit on 100.8 MHz FM to Cumbernauld and most of North Lanarkshire and East Dunbartonshire.

The existing Ofcom Community Radio licence issued to Revival FM to broadcast on 100.8 FM was set to expire in September 2016, on the anniversary of the original launch date, 3 September 2006.

The Revival Radio board a month ago submitted an application to Ofcom to extend the licence for another five years until September 2021.

Revival Radio director Iain Preston says: “I am pleased to let you know that on 22 April, we received communication from Ofcom indicating that the application has been approved and that accordingly the licence has been granted for the next five years to transmit on 100.8 FM.

We are pleased that the regulatory body has looked on our application favourably and so we would like to thank everyone involved for all their hard work and input over the last few months, and indeed years to make Revival FM what it is today.

Whilst we recognise that there will be challenging times ahead for the organisation across practical and financial areas we are appreciative of the Ofcom decision which of course gives us the legal remit to continue to operate and acknowledges the excellent programme and community service provided by Revival FM.  We continue to thank God for His continued guidance and direction in these matters.”
