CN Group sells more than half of its local radio stations


Carlisle-based independent regional newspaper publisher CN Group has announced it is disposing of its network of five local radio stations in the Midlands, called Touch Radio.

The buyer, Steve Orchard, is a commercial radio veteran who spent 25 years at GWR and then GCap Media before stepping down last year.

It marks a return to the industry for him – and means CN Group now only owns three radio stations: The Bay in Lancaster, Lakeland Radio in Kendal and Citybeat in Belfast.
