Kirkcaldy politicians Lesley Laird MP and Claire Baker MSP visited the K107 FM studios recently to congratulate the team as it marks a double celebration.
Kirkcaldy Community Radio has installed national news from the Sky News Network, which will allow presenters to link direct for live new updates at the top of the hour.
Additionally, Ofcom has approved the radio’s licence extension for a further five years when the current licence expires. This means the station, which broadcasts from Kirkcaldy on 107FM can now continue until 30 March 2024.
Chairman John Murray said: “With more live shows added all the time we are delighted with the news and it’s all down to the commitment of our volunteer broadcasters.”
Lesley Laird, MP for Kirkcaldy and Cowdenbeath, said: “Congratulations to John and the team for reaching this milestone.
“Establishing K107 FM in 2014 was an inspired move and the team has done stellar work developing the station in just a few years.
“It’s great to see community radio grow from strength to strength in Kirkcaldy and I wish the station’s team all the best in the future.”
Claire Baker MSP for Mid Scotland and Fife said: “It was great to join John and Lesley in celebrating K107 FM and their news that Ofcom have extended their licence for a further five years.
“As Scottish Labour’s shadow cabinet secretary for Culture, I know the significant role community radio plays in broadcasting and the opportunities they offer locals, who have a real passion for radio and music.
“Kirkcaldy has a rich history in broadcasting and music and K107FM can continue to contribute to that. I wish John and everyone at the station all the best in the future.”
