Cambridge 105 Radio will continue broadcasting across the City and South Cambridgeshire until at least September 2022. The media regulator Ofcom has granted the commercially-funded community broadcaster a new five-year licence.
From today the station will be known as “Cambridge 105 Radio” emphasising its availability not only on FM, but also DAB Digital Radio, online and on the go through apps such as the RadioPlayer.
Industry research body RAJAR says the share of all radio listening via a digital platform now stands at 48.7% – up 6% year on year. The digital share is comprised of DAB (34.5%), Online/App (8.8%) and Digital TV (5.4%)*.
In line with the new brand, Cambridge 105 Radio has a new logo in the station’s distinctive green livery and a new imaging package that goes live at 7am this morning at the start of Breakfast with Neil & Linda.
Station Manager Tim Willett said: “Since 2010 Cambridge 105 Radio has been serving the city and South Cambridgeshire with a mix of news, music and entertainment. While the name and sound may be changing, Cambridge 105 Radio will continue to give a voice to those members of the community often unrepresented by mainstream media, highlight local charitable organisations, and showcase the wealth of musical talent the area has to offer.”
