Panjab Radio, which recently acquired London based Turkish Gold Radio, has requested for a format change to turn it into Panjab Radio.
It wants to change from a targeted news, information and broad Turkish music service for London�۪s Turkish and Cypriot community to one which would provide a service aimed at the Panjabi community to be broadcast in Panjabi and English languages.
Panjab Radio London Limited holds an AM commercial radio licence for north London.
Panjab Radio took over Turkish Gold Radio from previous licence holder Kirmizi Beyaz Kibris Ltd in April this year. Panjab Radio has up until now been broadcasting solely on digital radio and nationally on Sky Digital since 2000.
