So why are Leeds TV even covering Scarborough?


The old fashioned commercial radio trick of covering an area larger than they actually cover to make it more attractive to advertisers.

Which us why That's TV have now rebranded channels with more regional names.

I preferred the internet when it had a sense of humour.

I didn't notice that, because my local station has been called That's TV Humber, a name that fits the new pattern, and not Hull, ever since they replaced Grimsby based Estuary TV. I wonder if they were already been planning those name changes at the time.

That often happens, but ironically Leeds-based Radio Aire slimmed down their claimed TSA from roughly 950k to 650k over the years. Have to say, it hasn't helped their market share look any healthier.

BTW, Leeds TV uses the name Yorkshire Live for its local effort. Which reaches a small part of Yorkshire and is never Live.
