West Midlands station ceases transmission

Sanjhi Awaz Radio, a DAB only service based in the Midlands, has stopped broadcasting after suffering financial difficulties.

According to Biz Asia, the service was in trouble back in July and was looking for investors, but has since been unable to meet the costs of keeping the station on-air.

The station launched in April 2010 replacing The Arrow in the West Midlands offering programmes in Hindi, Urdu, Punjabi and English for all age groups.

Also in the area, Radio XL has suddenly stopped broadcasting on the CE Birmingham multiplex. The station is continuing on 1296AM and is expected to launch on the regional MXR multiplex for greater coverage.
