A request from the owner of Nation Radio Limited to change the Format of Nation Radio, a regional FM commercial radio service broadcasting to South Wales, has been approved by Ofcom.

The previous ‘Character of Service’ contained in Nation Radio’s Format (which forms part of its broadcast licence) was as follows:

A MUSIC STATION PLAYING A MAJORITY OF ROCK AND ROCK-ORIENTED TRACKS, INCLUDING COVERAGE OF LOCAL ARTISTS.

Following the approval of the requested changes, the ‘Character of Service’ will now be as follows:

A MUSIC STATION FOR WALES INCLUDING COVERAGE OF LOCAL ARTISTS.

Ofcom has also approved Nation Radio’s request to increase the number of locally-made hours required by the station’s Format from at least 10 hours during daytime on weekdays, and at least four hours on weekend days, to a minimum of 21 hours per day, every day.
