Ofcom grants licence to Leeds Jewish radio

September 24, 2009

Ofcom has granted a Leeds-based Jewish radio station a five-year licence for medium wave programming.

Broadcasting on 1386AM, Radio Jcom was only previously available through the internet.

Station manager David Harris was “very excited about the station going on air. We already have a range of programmes covering all areas of interest and will be enlarging on these.”

Jcom broadcasts from the Marjorie and Arnold Ziff Community Centre to some 10,000 households across north Leeds. It is funded by grants from Leeds City Council and Makor - the local Jewish cultural and resource centre - and by advertisements from local businesses.
