Hi there,

I've just noticed that Global have had a rebrand and are no longer called 'Global Radio'.

There's also a new blue logo so the red one on this page is no longer used. Looks like they're using one logo for all of their work.

Thanks Sophie


Drive time[edit]

Dear folks, there's some things I'm asking for you to do:

  1. Add more information and citations of reliable sources to Drive time, and
  2. Clarify at WP:AfD whether and when a drive time DJ is considered notable by virtue of their position, size of media market, prestige, awards, and other factors necessary for notability.
  3. Input into this specific debate: Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion/Catalina_Maya_(2nd_nomination).
  4. For reference of past discussions, for DJs, see Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Liz Wilde and Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Jonathan Sammeroff; for shows, see Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Carvana and Drivetime (RTÉ).

I am not canvassing either way; I just want to get this ongoing issue resolved with a consensus. I'm cc:ing DGG and Richard3120. Thank you for your time, effort, and attention to this matter. Bearian (talk) 14:01, 26 November 2019 (UTC)

Re Drive time, I see WP:RS appear available [1] [2] but can't promise I'll get to it in the near future. - LuckyLouie (talk) 16:13, 26 November 2019 (UTC)

List of oldest radio stations[edit]

List of oldest radio stations (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views) This list has multiple issues. I've noted some on the talk page and will try to clean it up during the next few weeks as I have time. Thoughts on inclusion criteria and structure (which section titles should be included) would be most welcome. --mikeu talk 20:16, 30 November 2019 (UTC)

New bot to remove completed infobox requests[edit]

Hello! I have recently created a bot to remove completed infobox requests and am sending this message to WikiProject Radio since the project currently has a backlogged infobox request category. Details about the task can be found at Wikipedia:Bots/Requests for approval/PearBOT 2, but in short it removes all infobox requests from articles with an infobox, once a week. To sign up, reply with {{ping|Trialpears}} and tell me if any special considerations are required for the Wikiproject. For example: if only a specific infobox should be detected, such as {{infobox journal}} for WikiProject Academic Journals; or if an irregularly named infobox such as {{starbox begin}} should be detected. Feel free to ask if you have any questions!
