Ofcom extends Red Kite Radio’s broadcasting licence for a further five years!
We’re delighted to announce that Ofcom, the UK’s broadcasting regulator, has renewed our licence to broadcast for a further five years from the end of June. Community radio stations are typically granted licences for a term of five years, which means that the new licence will enable us to continue broadcasting until June 2027.
Director and presenter Howard Bond said, “We have a great team of volunteers at Red Kite Radio. They give their time freely presenting shows, reading the news and providing technical support. The five-year extension to our licence is recognition of the tremendous work by our volunteers in keeping the station on the air.”
Station manager Chris Long added “Our team has grown considerably over the past five years, and with that growth has come a variety of specialist music programmes featuring music to suit all tastes. We are proud to be able to continue serving the residents of Thame, Haddenham and the villages for the next five years… and beyond!”
