Global changes at Galaxy

Global Radio is changing the concept of Galaxy Digital to offer listeners more live programming. The output of Galaxy on DAB in areas without an FM service, along with Sky and Virgin Media, will be a relay of programmes from one of the four analogue Galaxy stations in Manchester, Yorkshire, Newcastle and Birmingham.

Previously, a separate service of dance music and pre-recorded links were offered on DAB multiplexes in London, Central Scotland, Nottingham and Leicester.

Split idents will inform digital listeners they are listening to "Galaxy – across the UK" rather than an out-of-area service.

Global approached Ofcom with the proposition that instead of a pre-recorded offering, listeners would be better served listening to actual output, to which Ofcom agreed and granted permission for the changes.

A spokesperson for Global Radio told there will be no job loses as a result.
