COSTA radio station Bay FM is getting a fresh lick of paint and a brand new transmission zone.

Previously transmitting to the Campo de Gibraltar and San Roque, the station, now to be based between San Pedro and Estepona, will serve listeners on the western Costa del Sol.

Owner Mike Martin told the Olive Press: “The re-launch will bring a different type of radio station to the area between San Pedro and Sabanillas/Duquesa.

“It will be a local station for English-speaking residents, with local news and comment.”

The new station should be going live in mid-October – frequency to be confirmed.

“Meanwhile Campo de Gibraltar listeners will be able to tune into a new station that is taking our old frequency of on 92FM,” said Martin.

“And they can still listen to Bay FM via the internet or via the TuneIn application on a smartphone.”
