Global talks up speech station

Global Radio, the UK’s biggest commercial radio group, has confirmed that it’s looking into the launch of a national speech station on digital radio. Some sources suggest it might be an extension to London’s LBC station.

It’s understood, according to [link=]Press Gazette[/link], that the group are proposing a news and talk station on the national digital platform, Digital One. It’s seen as part of an industry-wide bid to encourage the sale of DAB radios.

A Global Radio spokesman described claims that the group was proposing to launch a national digital speech station as "not inaccurate", but he added: "We will not be making further comment at this stage."
