It is a regulatory requirement that commercial radio stations in the UK have a Public File that broadcasts on AM/FM or DAB. Touchdown Radio does not broadcast on AM/FM frequencies, and thus means we do not need to comply with the scope of producing a Public file.
The information and links below make up the Public File for Touchdown Radio, which has been produced to give clarity on its operations.
Formats are documents issued to Ofcom licence holders, they outline what is required of a radio station's programming. Touchdown Radio is not Broadcaster on AM/FM, this means we legally have no obligation to house a Public File. However we run our station in an ethical way with openness and transparency.
