In a statement released today, BAI confirmed that no applications had been received for the music-driven (alternative rock) sound broadcasting service for Dublin City & County which was advertised on December 21 last year.

TXFM, the successor to Phantom 105.2, has been on the air for two years and six full-time employees are set to lose their jobs as a result of it going off the air.

The BAI revealed that two expressions of interest had been made for the license as of December 1 2015.

The BAI Contract Awards Committee will consider the matter at a meeting in April and provide further updates in due course.
