If News UK change their mind in a couple of years, could funding for this radio station suddenly disappear?
Of course, like any other commercial venture if it doesn't work then it will close. But News UK have big pockets, look at how much they paid for Chris Evans.
Talk Sport is their only really successful station (and the only one on analogue) Virgin does well but it's only really Evans that props up its ratings. Talk Radio has been slow to grow. They're in it for the long game I think
If it's truely connected to the 'Dark Lord' I would personally give it a wide berth on principle. Anyone remember the phone hacking?
Not just that, Colin Murray left Talk Sport as soon as it was bought by News UK because of Hillsborough
Phone hacking hasn't gone away of course, its just now the Mirror papers rather than News UK that's getting the heat
