More from OfCom, and a little moment in history. The final new FM licence in the UK has been awarded. And the final FM frequency up for grabs was in North Wales. It went to GMG Radio, who intend to expand the Welsh version of their Real Radio brand so that it covers the whole country.

Outgoing GMG Radio Chief Executive John Myers welcomed the licence, saying: “This is a fantastic moment for our group. We started in Wales nearly 10 years ago after winning our first licence for the south”.

“Now we are Britain’s third largest radio group and have replicated the success of Real Radio across the country. Listeners in North and Mid Wales can look forward to a fantastic new radio service that will provide them with great music and entertaining compelling speech”.
