Yes, to me the USP of Eklipse is Scottish footy content so the station should come into its own once actual Scottish football is back for the new season. There are good numbers there to be had for...

Heart's fall doesn't really surprise me. The station is squarely chasing a 'yummy mummy' audience that doesn't exist in Scotland in the same way as down south. Real piled on a mass audience with...
