Inquiry on impact of digital radio planned

The Culture, Media and Sport Committee is to hold a short inquiry into the implications of the Government’s proposals in relation to digital radio broadcasting.

The Committee says it is aware of significant concerns among both broadcasters, especially smaller and local commercial stations, and radio listeners about the impact of digital broadcasting.

“We have therefore decided to hold a short inquiry into the implications of the Government’s proposals in relation to digital radio broadcasting, which are expected to be announced within the next three weeks,” the committee has said.

The detailed terms of reference for this inquiry, and instructions on how to submit written evidence, will be issued when the details of the Government’s proposals are known after December 16th.

UKRD Chief Executive William Rogers told RadioToday: “It’s clear that there is so much still to be determined and that, in so many areas, the Government has simply got a lot of this wrong. I hope that this will give the opportunity to provide evidence to the MP’s who sit on the committee so that we can, at last, get to the real issues that need to be sorted.”

Digital Radio UK tells RadioToday they are in support of the inquiry.

The Committee is expected to take oral evidence in relation to this inquiry in January 2014.
