Blackburn Rovers FC Ends Radio Rovers after 23 years

The UK’s longest running annual RSL at Blackburn Rovers Football Club has ceased broadcasting from the start of the 2017/8 season.

The club ran the first Premier League football club radio station in 1993, using a specially adapted 28-day Restricted Service Licence from the Radio Academy. Radio Rovers was permitted to broadcast every home match from its base the clubs home ground Ewood Park on 1413 (and later 1404) AM.

It provided pre-match entertainment for fans at home and on their way to the match, along with full commentary in partnership with the local hospital radio station, followed by an after-match phone-in.
