Consultation: Request From Ujima Radio To Change Its Key Commitments

37views

Ofcom is consulting on a request from Bristol-based community radio station, Ujima Radio, to change its key commitments. 

A station’s key commitments form part of its broadcasting licence. They include the character of the service, its required programming, and accountability to listeners in the local area.

Ujima Radio’s requests include:

  • changing the main target community of the station to people of African and Caribbean heritage in the St Paul’s and Easton areas of Bristol; and
  • removing a requirement to broadcast two non-English languages over the course of a week.  This would be replaced with a commitment to broadcast in English, and sometimes other languages of African heritage.

Ofcom states: “While we are minded to approve the requests, given the changes would significantly alter the character of the service, we are seeking views before making our final decision. We are particularly interested in hearing from the station’s target community. Responses must be submitted by 5pm on 17 February 2023.”
