Yesterday (30/09/2014) Ofcom informed us that we have been successful in it’s application for a prestigious license extension, which will allow us to broadcast to East Grinstead and the surrounding area until March 2020.
Meridian FM Chair Liz Bennett had this to say.
“I am absolutely thrilled to receive the news that Ofcom have extended our licence for a further 5 years. This is due to the hard work and dedication of over 70 volunteers under the management of Peter Monnery, our fantastic MD! My gratitude and thanks must also go to our dedicated and diligent secretary Sally Monnery who led and coordinated our complex and detailed submission that has led to an unopposed maximum license term! Ofcom have noted our high levels of local live output, our community news, travel and sports programmes, and our dedicated educational work with teenagers. Meridian FM's sole purpose is to be here to support the community of East Grinstead the wider communities of Lingfield, Forest Row and our surrounding towns and villages; and it is to this end that I am very proud to be it’s Chair”.
