Consultation: Love Sport and Panjab Radio - Requests to change Format

  • Start: 08 February 2019
  • Status: Open
  • End: 08 March 2019

Ofcom is proposing to approve the Format Change Requests submitted by ASSL, which holds an AM commercial radio licence for Greater London broadcasting as ‘Love Sport’, and PRRL, which holds an AM commercial radio licence for North London broadcasting as ‘Panjab Radio’.

ASSL wishes to change the ‘Character of Service’ of its station’s published Format for the Greater London coverage area from “A 24-hour speech service for Londoners focussing on sports plus some topical content and local information” to, “The service will be known as Panjab Radio and will provide a service aimed at the Panjabi community. The service will be broadcast in Panjabi and English languages.”

PRRL wishes to change the ‘Character of Service’ of its station’s published Format for the North London AM coverage area from, “The service is known as Panjab Radio and will provide a service aimed at the Panjabi community. Embracing Panjabi culture and language with spiritual music and the celebration of festivals for a variety of religions. The service broadcast in Panjabi and English languages.” to “A 24-hour speech service for Londoners focussing on sports plus some topical content and local information”.

We have taken a preliminary view on the requests and are minded to grant them. However, we are seeking views on the requests before we make a decision.

The consultation closes at 5pm on 8 March 2019.
