New national DAB station to launch in Feb

A replacement service for Jazz FM on the national DAB Digital One platform is expected to launch soon, multiplex owner Arqiva has confirmed to RadioToday.

The exact genre of the new station has yet to be announced, but it is expected it will be on-air in February. Until then Birdsong will occupy the slot vacated by Jazz FM yesterday.

Jazz FM announced plans to remove itself from national digital radio last month, and Arqiva advertised for a replacement jazz station in the summer in preparation for the change.

The current Digital One licence stipulates a “Classic & Contemporary Jazz” service will be provided, and no “variation request” to this condition has been made public so far.
