Public File

Each local commercial station in the UK has requirements in respect of its music and local content, such as news etc. These requirements are set out in the station 'format', a document issued by Ofcom, the UK media regulator.


The public file contains details of elements which Ofcom regulates over, such as music tracks, local news etc. It is intended to give you a better understanding of our output and what we are doing for the community we serve. The public file is available as a print-out request. Any comments on the file can be made to us, or Ofcom.

Under the requirements of our licence agreement with the regulator Ofcom, we are required to keep a public file. This public file is intended to give you an understanding of our music, news and local content.
Each commercial station also has a 'Format' which governs the station's character of service. The format for The Breeze can be found on the Ofcom website.
