Ofcom rejects XS Manchester’s request of format change
XS Manchester’s request of format change to rebrand as Capital XTRA has been rejected by Ofcom.

There were over 70 individuals and organisations who responded, with all but two opposed to the proposed changes...More >>

Opinion: RadioToday industry predictions for 2020
One thing is for sure – radio is changing at an incredible pace. Keeping up with emerging products and making full use of smart technology is key. But whilst the art of ‘input’ is changing, the ‘output’ has remained fairly static for many decades. Listeners can still hear a friendly voice on the radio at all hours of the day – the major difference is where the voice is located and when they were recorded. But let’s dig deeper down into the industry and see what 2020 might bring...More >>
