Orion Media is to rebrand Birmingham station brmb as Free Radio from April this year, along with Mercia, Beacon and Wyvern.

The group says peak time output will remain local on the stations with no redundancies as a result.


It means the four heritage brands, which have each existed at least 30 years, will be lost from the UK airwaves. BRMB launched in 1974, Beacon in 1976, Mercia in 1980 and Wyvern in 1982 and have kept the same names since.

Orion Media bought the stations from Global Radio in 2009 along with Gem 106 (formerly Heart) and Gold West Midlands. Last year, Mercia was moved into BRMB in Birmingham to save costs.
