French Radio London is to remove itself from Switchdigital’s London DAB multiplex.
The station, now five years old, will cease on the 25th of June this year to concentrate its output on stream only and listen again/podcasts.
The station told RadioToday it continues to see huge increases in stream listening via its website, apps, connected radios, iTunes and various other platforms like Tunein/Sonos. A recent audience survey showed them that over 75% of DAB listeners can easily switch to stream listening at home, at work, on the move, or in a car.
“Much like many other stream-only radio stations, moving to stream-only presents FRL with some very exciting opportunities and enhancements for listeners and advertisers alike, which we look forward to announcing soon,” the station added.
“We would like to thank Switchdigital (London) Ltd, our London DAB multiplex operator for the service they have provided to FRL for the past 5 years.”
