DC Thomson has completed an acquisition of Dundee-based radio station Wave 102.
The station will join DC Thomson’s publishing arm, DCT Media, which includes a range of newspapers and magazines, including The Courier.
Adam Findlay, the CEO of the New Wave Media Group which acquired Wave 102 in May 2008, will work with DCT Media for the next 12 months to ensure a smooth transition and the sales team and programme controller have already joined the business.
The station will continue to broadcast from Buchanan Street in Dundee.
Mike Watson, managing director of DCT Media, said: “We’re pleased to have acquired the Ofcom radio licences for Dundee and Perth, currently broadcasting as Wave 102FM.
“This addition to the DCT Media portfolio enhances our offering to advertisers and extends our reach to local audiences across Dundee, Angus and Perthshire.”
