GCap wants 2nd national multiplex

GCap Media has joined forces with BT and Arqiva to bid for second national digital radio multiplex. It is expected BT will lead the bid, as GCap are only allowed a minority stake in a bid because it owns the majority of the existing national commercial multiplex, Digital One.

Ralph Bernard, the chief executive of GCap, yesterday confirmed the planned consortium application, according to a report in The Times newspaper.

Last week, reports suggested a consortium including Chrysalis, UTV, Emap and SMG planning to bid for the new digital multiplex collapsed.

Other bidders for the multiplex include National Grid Wireless and Channel 4.
