Public File

Every local commercial radio station in the British Isles has requirements in respect of its music and speech content, such as the amount of local news and information. These requirements are set out in the station "Format", a document issued by Ofcom, the communications regulator.

This Public File contains details of the elements that Ofcom regulate, such as music tracks and local news. It is intended to give you an overview of our output and what we are doing for the Guernsey community.
