No date set for digital radio

Ofcom chief executive Ed Richards once again gave no indication about when analogue radio will be switched off, refusing to name a date when DAB digital radio will become the norm. Richards was speaking this morning at the Radio Festival in Cambridge.

During an interview with Jeremy Vine in front of hundreds of industry pros, the Ofcom boss compared the change from analogue TV to digital, saying they know exactly how complicated a move it is, and they anticipate radio to be 4 or 5 times that.

“I could suggest 2013 as the date for analogue switch off — a year after television – but that would be foolish” Richards said.

More from Cambridge from later.
