This logo was only used on the stations application of Ofcom & prior to launch.
UTV won the Preston, Leyland & Chorley FM licence under the name Proud FM. However, they chose not to use this name as it was felt it would alienate non-Preston listeners.
Blackburn & Preston
Shortly after UKRD bought the Preston service, and after gaining permission from Ofcom, the Blackburn & Preston services were merged into The Bee.
This logo was modified after UKRD launched a new transmitter to better serve Chorley (on 96.3).
THE BEE was merged with its sister station 2BR in June 2016.
