History[edit]

The article says "The history of continuous news radio in London dates back to the early 1990s."

How so? LBC originally began in 1973 and was promoted as being just that. Am I missing something? Alarics (talk) 07:46, 5 September 2010 (UTC)

potential[edit]

It's remarkable that one of the world's major cities can't create a really good rolling news radio station, which could actually be listened-to throughout the English-speaking world. The BBC, incomprehensibly, won't do rolling news radio (even though they do rolling news TV), so the market is wide open. LBC's failure is matched by that of BBC London, which ought to be the flagship local station, threatening the BBC's national stations. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 80.189.103.145 (talk) 19:10, 6 December 2010 (UTC)

Requested move 9 January 2015[edit]

The following is a closed discussion of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. Editors desiring to contest the closing decision should consider a move review. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the move request was: moved. Number 57 11:51, 27 January 2015 (UTC)



LBC London News 1152LBC London News – Although the station's schedule page on LBC's website refers to its name as "LBC London News 1152"; on the radio, the station is now, as far as I am aware, only referred to as "LBC London News", without the 1152 suffix. On London DAB, the station is also labelled simply as "LBC London News". The station's new logo (viewable on Radio Player) is also devoid of any reference to 1152. I would have conducted the move by myself had it not been for the anomaly on the schedule page. --Relisted.  — Amakuru (talk) 15:00, 19 January 2015 (UTC) Khairul Islam 02:48, 9 January 2015 (UTC)

EDIT: Another page on LBC's website actually shows a variant of the logo that says "LBC LONDON NEWS 1152AM" and text that shows the same. Khairul Islam 03:08, 9 January 2015 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Khairul Islam (talkcontribs)

  • Support I have only known the station as LBC when in London. GregKaye 14:10, 20 January 2015 (UTC)

Discussion[edit]

  • A quick note for @Khairul Islam: - in general you should not close or carry out a move following your own move request, it is for an uninvolved editor to make the call on where the consensus lies. I have therefore moved it back, pending the outcome of this process. Since there has so far been no response to this, I am listing it for a further week of discussion.

The above discussion is preserved as an archive of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on this talk page or in a move review. No further edits should be made to this section.
