The program, which was originally set to be released on July 1, will continue to be free for anyone to listen to until June 30.
“It’s a huge change in the way people listen to radio,” Mr Stokes said.
“We have to work hard to be able to support this industry.”
“I think people are very pleased that we’ve had this opportunity.”
The station’s management has also been asked to ensure listeners are aware of changes to the program’s schedule.
The new schedule will be unveiled in due course.
