BBC Radio Foyle gets permanent DAB slot

Following a series of technical tests and funding negotiations, BBC Radio Foyle is now on DAB across Northern Ireland.

The station currently broadcasts the Breakfast programme with Enda McClafferty and Elaine McGee, Lunchtime With Mark Patterson, News At One, Stephen McCauley, Electric Mainline, Rejoice and live news and sport.

The news of the addition to DAB took place today in the Tower Museum Londonderry.

Peter Johnston (in the picture above), Director of BBC Northern Ireland, says: “BBC Radio Foyle does valuable work in serving our audiences in the north west and has been at the heart of many important stories and events over the past few years. It has long been a commitment of ours to bring BBC Radio Foyle to digital radio to make it even more widely available to listeners. I’m delighted today to be able to confirm that it now joins BBC Radio Ulster and BBC network stations on DAB.”

Earlier this year BBC Northern Ireland unveiled modernisations to its BBC Radio Foyle premises on Northland Road, Derry, including updated radio facilities and a new, purpose-built television studio.

BBC Radio Foyle commenced broadcasting in 1979 as an opt-out service from BBC Radio Ulster. The station moved to its current location on the Northland Road 30 years ago in 1985.
