Leicester Community Radio, LCR has been informed by Ofcom that our 107.5FM license, currently on a temporary service, must come to an end on August 7th 2021 and that they will not extend the license any further.
To date we have paid approximately £18,000 in license fees to Ofcom with heavy restrictions on sources of funding and advertising meaning much of this amount has come from private donors for what is essentially a public service.
- LCR is the only local radio station for the entire Greater Leicester Urban Area.
- Around 63% of our area has no coverage from any other community radio station.
- We are the only radio station serving our target demographic, as confirmed by Ofcom.
- The loss of this established service, licensed now for around 15 months, particularly at this time will be huge loss to the local community.
We, the undersigned, demand that Leicester Community Radio be given a full-time FM community license by Ofcom (on 107.5FM ) so that they can continue the very good work that they do for our community.
