Radio Asian Fever CIC (‘RAF’, or ‘the Licensee’) operates as ‘Fever FM’, a community radio station broadcasting primarily to the Harehills and Chapeltown areas of Leeds. A request from the Licensee to change its Key Commitments has been approved by Ofcom following a public consultation.
RAF, as set out in its Key Commitments, serves the South Asian communities of Leeds, broadcasting music and speech with a multi-lingual programme format, and a minimum of 15 hours of original output per day. RAF requested changes to its Key Commitments that would allow the station to focus on spiritual and relevant music and religious and cultural speech programming during times of religious significance and cultural celebration. It also requested that the service will provide original output for a minimum of 91 hours per week (a reduction from the current 15 hours per day).
A copy of RAF’s current Key Commitments with the requested changes ‘tracked’ into it was included in Ofcom’s consultation document.
