Pure Innovations, the charity which runs Pure Radio has announced today it’s looking for local organisations to step in and replace it as license holder for THIS radio station.
Unless new partners can be found before the end of the football season, the license will be handed back to Ofcom and Pure 107.8FM will go off the air.
Pure Innovations says it’s reluctantly taken the decision. Austerity measures have affected the income the charity receives to run projects for disadvantaged and disabled people, meaning it can no longer cover the radio station’s running costs.
Chief Executive Louise Parrott-Bates told Pure's Paul Holloway every effort’s being made to find an alternative solution to closing Pure radio.
