Capital Liverpool launch date and programmes announced

Global Radio has announced details of the next commercial radio shake-up in Liverpool, as Capital FM on 107.6 and DAB replaces Juice FM on Monday 18th January 2016.

Across the country, Capital is the UK’s number 1 hit music brand reaching more than eight million people every week. As Capital arrives in Liverpool, Global is combining programmes from the national network with locally produced shows with regular favourites:

Adam Weighell, Gemma Cutting and Imogen Townley will present the Capital Liverpool Breakfast Show Monday to Friday from 6-10am and Graeme Smith and Sarah Story will join the station to host Capital Liverpool Drivetime from 4pm every week day.

Every Thursday and Friday at 6pm, Graeme and Sarah will hand over to Anton Powers who will get the Liverpool weekend started early with the hottest tracks and some exclusive remixes while Baz Todd will bring the biggest tunes to Liverpool every weekend. 

Chris Chambers is Capital Liverpool’s news editor and his team will present 13 news bulletins every day.

Under Ofcom rules, local stations that are part of a national network of stations must broadcast at least 7 hours of local content on weekdays and 4 hours at the weekend.

The changes to the service on 107.6 follows Globals acquisition of Juice FM from UTV Media earlier this year. It's the second big change to Liverpool's radio scene in recent times: Radio City 2 and Radio City Talk swapped AM/FM frequencies last week coinciding with tweaks in programming.
