Panjab Radio leaves Digital 1

National Asian service Panjab Radio is to cease transmissions on the nation DAB platform Digital 1.

The station, which has been broadcasting nationally for less than six months, will continue to air on regional multiplexes in London, West Yorkshire and the West Midlands.

The news was confirmed on [link=]Biz Asia[/link], which says the station's last day on Digital 1 will be May 31st. It will continue on Sky Digital.

"The main reason for the change in direction is down to high costs in broadcasting on national digital radio and low commercial returns to sustain the service." Biz Asia says.

It's the second station in as many weeks to leave DAB, with Bauer's Q Radio disappearing from its London multiplex on May 21st.
