1. What is the Public File?

Each radio station in the UK has requirements in respect of its music and local content, such as news etc. These requirements are set out in the station Format and Character of Service, a document issued by OFCOM, the UK media regulator. The Public File contains details of elements OFCOM regulate over, such as music tracks, local news etc. It is intended to give you a better understanding of our output and what we are doing for the community we serve. Any comments on the file can be made to us or OFCOM.
