Statement: Jack3 Chill – Request to change Format

Published: 3 October 2022
Consultation closes: 31 October 2022
Status: Closed (statement published)

Ofcom has decided to approve the Format change request submitted by Jack Media for the local radio broadcasting licence it holds for Oxford.

The ‘Character of Service’ contained in the published Format will change from “A music-intensive station playing an eclectic mix of easy Hits for the over 50’s with local news, sport and information” (JACK3 Chill).” to: “A rhythmic-led music station playing current Hits and the best Hits from the past 20 years with local news, sport and information for the 15-29 audience in Oxfordshire” (JACK2 Hits).

While this change means JACK3 Chill will be replaced on FM by JACK2 Hits, both services will continue to be available on digital platforms.
