Cross media ownership rules

The Media Ownership (Radio and Cross Media) Order 2011, came into effect on 15th June 2011 and has removed all local cross-media ownership rules.

This means that local media interests, such as newspapers and radio, will be able to develop new business models and offer services across different platforms.
