The Voice in North Devon goes digital
A community radio station in North Devon has secured space on the local digital multiplex.
The Voice is hoping to start broadcasting on DAB before April 12th, when its current temporary FM licence runs out.
The group has been campaigning for local radio in North Devon for the last two years, and is waiting on a decision on its request to broadcast full time on FM. The station says this decision has been promised within weeks.
The Voice welcomes back former Heart and Lantern FM presenters – Hopps and Chapple, Ian Starling and Martin King. Other ex Lantern FM presenters include Keith Oliver, Robbie Ryan and Phil Morgan.
The station is promising local news, more music choice, specialist shows and a greater involvement within the community. The DAB signal will be broadcast from Huntshaw Cross and will mean that most parts of the North Devon area will receive The Voice on Digital Radio.
