One Network who is part of the G-Cap group has been fined relating to a competition.

To save anyone having to wade through the 30 pages of the report, here is The Independent's slightly shorter version - http://www.independent.co.uk/news/media/radio-stations-fined-pound11m-over-competitions-854806.html

A good start for G-Caps new owners.

I've never participated in any of these phone-in/vote things, believing from the very start that they were a con. It's one of the few things I've been proved right about.

Its a good job the BBC cant give away money on the radio Laughing

I think the fine is so high because GCAP management didnt take the problem seriously.

May be gcap will start investing in decent radio now rather than the junk they fill the airwaves with. I hope this has taught them a lesson, i doubt it tho.

This is equally as dodgy as the phone-in competition row with ITV1 and CH4's Richard & Judy show!

I wish they'd drop that 'Power of Advertising' ad myself - the 'Celebrity Morris Dancing' one was so naff that ITV1 would do it for real!
