- Touch Radio, Capital Radio's Cardiff-based AM station for the over-35s, is to be renamed Capital Gold 1359 and 1305AM, following regulatory approval from the Radio Authority.

The rebranding will be accompanied by changes to the station's schedule: DJ Tony Blackburn has been hired to host the drivetime show and there will be a stronger emphasis on sport.

Trailers have already begun to introduce listeners to the changes, and there will be themed promotions and events in the run-up to the official relaunch on 1 July.

Capital acquired Touch Radio parent, Red Dragon, in an £18.25 million takeover last May.
