FUN radio announces this week that it has extended its DAB Digital Radio coverage to include Cardiff & Newport, Sussex and Kent.
FUN radio caters for pre and primary school children and their parents and carers, providing a safe-haven for children that is entertaining and educational, as well being fun. The station encourages children to learn through the radio, in particular through educational music and song, as well as through reading and playtime.
Music content comprises nursery rhymes, well known sing-a-longs, music from favourite children?s films, televisions programmes and stage plays, songs created for children, international tracks and carefully selected child-friendly pop. The speech content includes stories, children’s book reviews, games and things to make and do, as well as parent-orientated entertainment and information for grown-ups.
FUN radio is now available on DAB digital radio multiplexes serving London, Essex, Berkshire & North Hampshire, Wiltshire, Bristol, Avon, Dorset, Cardiff & Newport, Sussex and Kent, and on the Internet at funradiolive.com.
FUN radio Chief Executive, Gregory Watson, said “It is exciting to be able to broaden the coverage area of FUN radio and now serve an additional 3m listeners. In total now, FUN radio serves over 18m children and adults through DAB Digital Radio. 2005 was a great inaugural year for FUN radio. We have many great new programming ideas for 2006, and will be increasing our public presence.?
