- Minster Northallerton
Minster Northallerton Broadcast area North Yorkshire Frequency 102.3 & 103.5 MHz First air date 11 June 2007 Format Adult Contemporary Owner Local Radio Company
Prior to launch, Minster Northallerton was originally known as BTN FM, after the principal towns of the area - Bedale, Thirsk and Northallerton. The Local Radio Company were awarded the franchise in November 2005 by OFCOM and the station launched on 11 June 2007.
The station was later given permission by OFCOM to move into the same building as Alpha Radio in Darlington which is outside of Minster Northallerton's broadcast area and to share some programmes with Alpha Radio. The station was also going to be renamed as Alpha Northallerton.
Instead, the station's frequencies are now used to broadcast Star Radio North East which was formed when the parent company decided to merge Minster Northallerton with Alpha Radio and Durham FM. The signal is broadcast on two FM frequencies, a 40 watt signal on 103.5, as well as the former Thirsk relay of sister station Minster FM on 102.3 VHF.
