Jazz FM leaves regional DAB multiplexes

Regional DAB transmissions from Jazz FM in the West Midlands, North West, London and Glasgow have now ended.

The station had been duplicating coverage in these areas since appearing on Digital One in March this year, and will now be replaced by GMG’s rock station Real XS.

A continuous loop has now appeared advising listeners to press Autotune on their DAB radio sets, and tune in to “Jazz FM National” from Monday (5 September).

GMG Radio, who own the space on the regional and local multiplexes that was being used by Jazz FM, say they will replace it in London, the North West and West Midlands with Real XS, the new sister brand of Real Radio which launches on Monday in place of 106.1 Rock Radio in Manchester. In Scotland, Real XS will go on the Central Scotland (Switchdigital) multiplex, with Smooth Radio replacing Jazz FM on the Glasgow (Bauer) multiplex and Smooth also replacing Rock Radio on the Edinburgh (Bauer) multiplex at the same time.

Rock Radio Manchester is already broadcasting on the North East, Yorkshire and South Wales & Severn Estuary so these services will change to Real XS from next week too.
