New DAB TXs for Worcs and Lancs

The BBC have made DAB radio available to almost 50,000 more people, after adding their national services to transmitters in Worcestershire and Lancashire.

The upgrades also mean better digital radio coverage for hundreds of thousands of people in the two counties.

Adding DAB to the St Ann's Well transmitter in Malvern provides coverage in Great Malvern, as well as enhancing coverage through Worcester and Droitwich into Bromsgrove. The transmitter also improves coverage in Tewkesbury and Cheltenham in Gloucestershire.

The Haslingden TX in Lancashire being DAB-enabled brings coverage to a further 31,000 people between Bury and Blackburn, improving coverage in Bury, Rawtenstall and Bacup.

Mark Friend, Controller of 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. We hope more listeners will discover the range of programmes and services offered by DAB."
