Off-air Time 106.6 'has new owners'

Troubled radio station Time 106.6 says it has a new owner, and could be back on air shortly.

The station, based in Slough, came off the airwaves yesterday. Its website has also been taken offline.

A tweet sent from the radio station's Twitter account confirmed today that it had new owners, a day after it said it was off-air due to ‘extreme technical difficulties’, adding that it hoped to resolve the problems in 48 hours.

Its previous owners, Sunrise Radio Group, went into administration in January.

It was announced on Tuesday that Lycamedia, a telecommunications company based in London’s Docklands, had brought Sunrise’s assets.

A spokesman for Grant Thornton, the administrators which handled the sale, confirmed that Sunrise’s assets had been sold to Lyca Media and that Sunrise Radio 1, Sunrise Radio 3, Time 107.5 and Tristar 96.6 would be operating ‘with immediate effect.’

He was unable to confirm whether Time 106.6 would be back on the airwaves within the same time scale.
