Its a good and bad development in my opinion. Its good the UK has another straight forward rolling news radio service. The NEWSRADIOUK station is a bit meh. The negative part is that London loses out on any true local 24hr (-ish) news service. Even though the station was not really hyper-focused on London. All that is now going to be gone. IMO a city the size of London needs 24hr broadcast news outlet. With this development it loses this. (Yes I know part of the schedule was dedicated to LBC National in the evening.) Oh well. I wonder anyone has the balls and the pockets to launch a CBSN Local-type streaming service for London. Seeing as BFMTV Paris and its new sister channels are going from strength to strength....SkyNews/NBCUniversal/Comcast Im looking at you.....Any road....roll on Global News National Radio!
I'm here to give you something to talk about! You're Welcome.
