Laser Broadcasting

Laser Broadcasting was a commercial radio operator based in Darlington in County Durham, England.

History

The group was founded in 2002 by Nigel Reeve—one of the launch directors of Classic FM and one time chief executive of London News Radio owners of LBC—and Nick Jordan, a media sales executive who previously worked at Invicta Radio, KFM and the Daily Express. Jordan left the company in August 2004.


Laser Broadcasting, via subsidiaries, held the licences for nine commercial radio stations in the UK:

After administration, Begbies Traynor sold five of Laser's stations to farmer and property developer John Roberts, who is also the owner of Exeter-based South West Radio Ltd. He bought Bath FM, Brunel FM, 3TR, and the two QuayWest stations.[1]
