STUDENT RADIO IN CRISIS: This time round its on a much larger scale than the Student Newspaper has taken its milk from the fridge: Campus Media has cut SBN off, and warns unless it can find a buyer, it'll go into luiquidation. SBN provides sustaining services for 50 student radio stations across the UK, and has provided cash and equipment to underwrite operations. An early casualty of the move could be Shock Radio in Salford, who had been planning a 28 day FM service this autumn; without the guarantees of cash and programming from SBN, Ofcom is reported to be cooling on the granting of a licence.
