Celador’s JACK stations to become Sam FM
Celador Radio is dropping the JACK fm brand and renaming its three current JACK stations to Sam FM from next week. The stations based in Southampton, Bristol and Swindon will rebrand on Wednesday 1st April – and Celador says they’ve been planning the change for the last six months. It leaves just two JACK fm stations remaining in the UK – in Oxford and Reading – following JACK FM Hertfordshire’s change to Bob FM last year.
