Avtar Lit’s London based Asian music station, Jeo Radio has landed in further problems, despite just being on air for around six months.

Just a few days ago, BizAsiaLive.com exclusively revealed that its analogue transmission on 1584AM (North London) was abruptly pulled off-air. Now, the station has reverted to just back-to-back music as it contemplates its future. The status of its presenters line-up is currently unknown.

BizAsiaLive.com has also learnt that Sarita Sabharwal, who is a Director at the station, is likely to resign from her position. Previously, Tony Patti who fronted the station’s Breakfast show also quit.

Jeo Radio was touted as Lit’s big comeback to UK Asian radio broadcasting after Sunrise Radio, he had founded, went into administration in 2014. The then Sunrise Radio and Kismat Radio frequencies were acquired by the Lyca Group (now named Lyca Radio 1458AM and Lyca Gold 1035AM). Lit’s son, Tony Lit then took charge of Sunrise Radio, while Avtar moved to India.
