Jazz FM is a well known UK based music station specialising in jazz music for a discerning music audience. The station was taken over in a management buy out from The Local Radio Company in May 2009. The newly formed company, Jazz Investments Limited, came to WRN directly for their satellite capacity needs for Eurobird 1 to enable them to be picked up on the UK's biggest direct to home satellite platform Sky on channel 0202.
WRN were the obvious choice as Jazz previously subcontracted capacity from Absolute Radio, also long-standing clients of WRN.
Since signing with WRN for satellite capacity and for EPG submission and management services in September 2008, WRN has also coordinated Jazz FM's successful launch onto channel # 729 on Freesat in October 2008.
Jazz also became WRN's newest tenants in May 2009, leasing studio and office space, enabling the station output to be broadcast directly from the WRN building.
Tim Nice, Jazz FM's Commercial Director, says "We're delighted to be working with WRN - nothing has been too much trouble and they've really made us welcome with top class facilities across the board".
