Mello FM Takes Over Hot 102 FM
Mello FM radio has reportedly acquired Hot 102 FM radio in a bid to produce the island’s second largest radio group.
Mello FM’s founder and CEO, Al Robinson, recently said via a statement that the Broadcasting Commission had granted approval for Cornwall Broadcasting Company Limited, owners and operators of Mello FM, to take over the management and control of Western Broadcasting Services Limited, which operates Hot 102 FM.
He also said the move will make Cornwall Broadcasting the second largest radio group in Jamaica, with a total of three radio stations.
Western Broadcasting Services Limited is owned by Ken Williams.
The Broadcasting Commission has reportedly stipulated that, with the new acquisition, Cornwall Broadcasting must provide coverage to 90 per cent of the island within six months.
The company’s third radio station, RIDDIM 96 FM, is to be operated from Mello FM Headquarters in Montego Bay. It will be operated on a 100 per cent reggae format.
