A commercial radio station’s Format sets out the type of broadcast output it is required to deliver, and forms a part of its licence. Formats may include requirements relating to a station’s music output, news provision, other types of speech content, its target audience, the volume and origin of locally-made programmes, and any programme sharing arrangements; taken together, these elements encapsulate the nature and overall character of a licensed service.
When a request to change a Format constitutes a significant departure from the character of service, the request is subject to consultation. This document outlines the request received from Communicorp UK Limited (‘Communicorp’) with regard to the licence for Kettering, Corby and Wellingborough, which broadcasts as Connect FM, and Ofcom’s preliminary view on the request to change its character of service.
