Global’s Capital brand is coming to Brighton following the radio firm’s acquisition of local radio station Juice 107.2 earlier this year. Capital Brighton will go live on 3 Sep on Juice’s 107.2 FM frequency, with brand new breakfast and drive time shows alongside other programming networked in from Capital’s London HQ.

Global, of course, rebranded many of its local FM stations under the Capital name back in 2011. It has since further expanded the Capital network through acquisition, including the Liverpool station that also broadcast under the name Juice. The acquisition of the previously independently owned Juice Brighton was announced back in January of this year.

Confirming the Capital brand would now arrive on FM in Brighton, Global boss Ashley Tabor said last week: “We’re proud to bring the fresh new sound of Capital to the vibrant area of Brighton and Hove. Across the country, Capital is the UK’s number one hit music brand, reaching more than 8.3 million people every week and bringing it to Brighton and including local and national news and entertainment is very exciting. We’re looking forward to working with new advertisers and partners in the area and connecting them with hit music fans through Capital”.
