Dearne FM wins in Barnsley Borough

The brand new FM radio licence for Barnsley Borough, part of the former county of South Yorkshire, has been awarded to Dearne FM, according to reports.

The station beat five other applicants in the contest to provide a new service for the towns of Cudworth and Dodworth, Wombwell and Worsbrough, Royston and Penistone.

The station has yet to announce a launch date.
