Fife Radio Station to Change Name for Charity

The Fife commercial radio station, Kingdom FM, is changing its name for five days – all in aid of charity.

From Monday to Friday next week, the station will be calling itself Maggie's FM, to celebrate the fifth birthday of the cancer charity, Maggie's, operating from dedicated premises in Fife.

Says Kingdom FM: “This is the first time that a radio station in Scotland has changed their name in the short term, with Ofcom, the industry regulator, signing off the good-hearted move by the radio station, which is known as the voice of Fife.”

The station adds: “The presenters will continue with their daily popular shows, combining music and news, with additional content on Maggie’s Fife, including interviews with local people who have benefited from Maggie’s, top tips from Maggie’s experts, celebrity shout outs and much more. Further announcements are to be revealed on the first day that Maggie’s FM airs, including which Maggie’s celebrity supporters are on board, new jingles, and much more.”

Kingdom FM started broadcasting in 1998 and boasts some 81,000 listeners each week.

The celebrations include a fundraising, High-5 Maggie’s Appeal. Maggie's Fife is located in Kirkcaldy.
