Schedule changes - April 2008

From Monday 7 April, BBC Three Counties Radio's programmes are changing.

From Monday 7 April, BBC Three Counties Radio's programmes are changing. The changes aim to offer a wider choice for our audience and, at the same time, better serve those listeners who value our specialist programmes.

With our sports programmes moving to medium wave, we will be aiming to increase the number of sports we are able to reflect, and we will continue to provide in-depth coverage of sporting events without having to move, or temporarily rest, other popular programming.

The move also allows us to extend a number of specialist programmes in a way which we were unable to do in the past and those changes reflect the value which their audiences place on the programmes.

Station editor Mark Norman said:

"Over the last eight months, I've been grateful for the feedback which I've received from listeners. That feedback has proved there is demand for a wider choice of listening both at weekends and during the evenings and these changes reflect the views of the majority of people who have contacted the station with their thoughts and ideas about what we should be doing in the future."
