Digital Radio is in crisis

GCap Media's outgoing chief executive Ralph Bernard has spoken about his disappointment in the lack of commitment from Ofcom about the switch-off date for analogue radio. He has urged the Government to set a date to enable broadcasters to "make a business plan that makes sense".

Speaking to Marketing Week, Ralph says that GCap's national multiplex Digital One has "a lot of issues" and the arrival of second multiplex next year will "swamp" the market.

"Digital One is a big challenge. BT has pulled out and Core and Life are being removed and we are seeking replacements but there is not a great queue of people waiting to take over."
