BBC Radio Bristol is set to switch its main frequency to 94.9FM, and provide a better signal, from Monday 3 December 2007. Managing Editor of Radio Bristol, Tim Pemberton says: “This is good news for our listeners in and around Bristol as it will mean we now have a high quality signal on 94.9FM. Our listeners in Bath can still hear us on 104.6FM and in the Weston-super-Mare area we will be on an additional new frequency, 103.6FM.”
The switch allows BBC Somerset to have an FM frequency of its own. BBC Somerset will begin broadcasting on Radio Bristol’s old frequency, 95.5FM, on Monday 3 December. These changes bring BBC Somerset into line with other BBC Local Radio stations that all have their own FM frequencies.
