'That's Oxford' due to start broadcasting

A new TV station for Oxfordshire has been announced. Broadcasting regulator Ofcom has revealed it is to give a licence to Abingdon-based That's Oxford. The news-driven channel will be based at Oxford Brookes University and is the brainchild of Daniel Cass, 37, who ran SIX TV.

The station could use media department students to run the schedule, and is expected to show a mix of politics, entertainment and kids' shows with a local twist. Oxfordshire was selected by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport in December as one of the 21 pilot areas.
