New DAB TX for South East

The BBC has announced a new digital radio transmitter to improve coverage for London and the South East.

We're told the site in Wrotham, Kent will mean around 133,000 extra people can get DAB and that it'll make the signal better for more than 7 million people in London, north Kent and Surrey.

Mark Friend, Controller, Multiplatform and Interactive at BBC Audio and Music said: "The BBC is committed to broadening the availability of digital radio and we are delighted to further expand and improve coverage in the South East and London. We hope more listeners will discover the range of programmes offered over DAB including ball-by-ball commentary of The Ashes on 5 live sports extra and some great festive highlights on Radio 7, 1Xtra and 6 Music over Christmas."

In today's press release, the BBC says is investing in the DAB network and fulfilling its commitment to reach around 92% of the UK population by the end of next year.
