Statement published 13 September 2019

Connect Radio Limited, which is wholly owned by Communicorp UK Limited (‘Communicorp’), holds an FM commercial radio licence for Peterborough, broadcasting as ‘Connect FM’. Communicorp submitted a request to change its Format and, following the changes, intends to relaunch the service as ‘Smooth Radio’. As the proposed Format change would constitute a significant departure from the ‘Character of Service’, the request was subject to public consultation.

Ofcom has decided to approve the Format change request submitted by Communicorp concerning the FM commercial radio licence for Peterborough.
