Bauer has removed the stereo hi-quality version of Kiss from 25 more local multiplexes, leaving a single national mono version in its place.
The station had been available on DAB twice in a number of locations since December. Now listeners in the areas below have been advised to re-tune to a mono signal available everywhere rather than a stereo signal available locally.
Kiss has been removed from Kent, South Hampshire, Sussex Coast, Cambridge, Norwich, Peterborough, Ayr, Aberdeen, Bradford & Huddersfield, Swansea, Stoke on Trent, Leicester, Nottingham, Birmingham, Manchester, Central Lancashire, Dundee &Perth, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Humberside, Inverness, Leeds, Liverpool, South Yorkshire, Tyne & Wear and Teeside.
Kiss owner Bauer Media told RadioToday in February it will “review the current transmission of Kiss on local DAB multiplexes as it launches on Digital One”.
New Kiss brands Kisstory and KissFresh launched yesterday online and on Freeview (Kisstory only).
