UKRD’s AM licence covering parts of Surrey and Hampshire has been acquired by Premier Christian Radio and will commence broadcasting its new programming schedule within days.

Following a Format request from Eagle owners UKRD, which was recently approved by Ofcom, the formal transfer of the licence has now taken place and the new owners will add the licence to their portfolio of stations.

UKRD’s Chief Executive Officer, William Rogers, confirmed the deal today and said he was delighted that the two parties have been able to conclude things. “This is a perfect fit for Premier and also facilitates our continuing evolution as a business. I am delighted to have worked with PCR on getting this done and I wish them every success with their new baby.”

Premier’s Peter Kerridge confirmed that the station will commence broadcasting within a few days and expressed his satisfaction that the company’s output will now stretch into Surrey and Hampshire. “This is a great opportunity for us and I’m looking forward to building our audience across the new TSA.”
