Midlands Radio Station Sudden Close

Oak 107 FM

A radio station broadcasting to West Leicestershire and Nuneaton closed suddenly and without warning immediately after their 6pm news bulletin on Thursday 28th July.  You can here the final 3 minutes of the broadcast here.

The closure of Oak 107 was posted on the station’s Facebook page by breakfast co-host Mark Rowley who made up Mark and Twiggy from the breakfast show.

The station was sold last year to ATR Media as a merger of both Oak FM and Fosseway.

Oak FM was sold by Quidem 12 months ago to ATR Media for an undisclosed sum. It was made up of two previous stations – Fosseway Radio and the original Oak FM. It relaunched in 2014 after a weekend of playing Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody non-stop.
