Welcome back Talk Radio

UTV is bringing back Talk Radio, thanks to new space available on the second national DAB digital radio multiplex won by 4 Digital today. Talk Radio originally launched on mediumwave in 1995 but changed to talkSPORT in 2000 under the control of Kelvin MacKenzie.

UTV, who now own talkSPORT, will launch the new digital all talk radio station next summer featuring opinionated presentation and lively debate.

John McCann, Group Chief Executive, UTV plc said: “We are delighted to be part of the winning consortium and I think the array of channels planned for the new multiplex will significantly help the industry drive towards digital.

“From UTV’s perspective we look forward to launching our second national speech channel next summer. Talk Radio will complement our successful talkSPORT service which earlier this week swept the board at the highly prestigious Arqiva Commercial Radio Awards, winning Station of the Year, Programmer of the Year, Technical Innovation and the much coveted overall Gold Award.

“With news, views and entertainment, listeners can look forward to an informative and opinionated commercial Talk Radio service from UTV next summer."
