10 YEARS OF TAKEOVER
The charity (reg. no. 1130114) and company (reg. no. 06805017) were set up in 2009.
From March 2010 the second Takeover Radio began broadcasting across Ashfield, Nottinghamshire. The first was Leicester's Takeover Radio 103.2fm operated by the charity Takeover Radio Children's Media Trust.
Takeover 106.9fm broadcast live on air for 5 years - then somewhat unexpectedly in 2014 we were granted an extension to our licence for another 5 years taking us through to 2019.
Our most recent licence extension is awaiting approval from OfCom and quite naturally we are hopeful for 'nonstop Takeover'!
To mark this milestone year, we are now planning to celebrate a decade of broadcasting in September 2019 with community outreach event/s!
