Saint FM rises again on Ascension

Saint FM Community Radio can be heard live on Ascension from 1 October 2013, a message to St Helena Online has confirmed.

It comes six months after the station was revived as a community enterprise on St Helena, following its abrupt closure at Christmas 2012 in the face of new competition from a government-funded company.

Councillors on St Helena have been urged to reconsider the level of funding for South Atlantic Media Services, which publishes The Sentinel newspaper but has so far launched only two of three promised radio stations for the island.

With the re-launch of Saint FM, the justification for launching another station has been questioned privately by island politicians and media-watchers.
