Time runs out on River

DETAILS are sketchy, but Spike hears that West Lothian radio station, River FM, closed yesterday, at 6pm, after its owners, the Kingdom Radio Group, failed to find a buyer.

Certainly, closure was on the cards when Kingdom put it up for sale a few weeks back.

And the previous station Kingdom had put up for sale, in Lanarkshire, also failed to find a buyer – though its broadcasting licence was taken up by former Radio 1 DJ, Mark Page, to form L107.
