Jazz FM set to return

GMG Radio has submitted plans to Ofcom to re-launch the online stream of jazzfm.com as a digital DAB station broadcasting to London and the North West. If approved, it would see the return of the brand that first launched in London in 1990.

Jazz FM turned into an online-only station after Smooth FM took over the two frequencies in 2004 (North West) and 2005 (London). However, GMG believes a 24 hour digital station will better serve jazz fans rather than including 45 hours per week on FM via Smooth Radio.

Chief Executive John Myers is confident Jazz FM on DAB will have a promising future: "We have always carried on with Jazz FM on-line but we now hope that the gap left by theJazz will enable us to win an increased audience to this new service."

The schedule and presenter line-up is to be announced.
