Station News - BBC Hereford & Worcester will soon be heard on 1584 kHz AM via the 300 Watt transmitter at Woofferton near Ludlow. With BBC R Shropshire having opened two new FM transmitters recently, the decision was made to switch 1584 kHz to carry BBC Hereford & Worcester so that listeners in North Herefordshire would enjoy better reception. It was several years ago that the Hereford AM transmitter on 819 kHz was closed. A possible date for the changeover is March 31, with a "retune" loop being broadcast for 24 hours prior to the switch.

Station News - Energy FM will soon be testing a new channel on 105.2 MHz from Ballasaig. Also their Ramsey transmitter on 98.6 will change to 98.3 MHz this month. Later this summer they'll also be on 102.4 MHz from Beary. (Energy FM website)
