Gold to replace XFM on local DAB multiplexes

With Radio X going national, the current slots used by XFM across the UK will be replaced by Gold or Chill.

In Nottingham and Leicester, Chill will get additional exposure, whilst in Manchester, Birmingham, Ayr, Bournemouth, Cambridge, Cornwall, Exeter/Torbay/North Devon, Kent, Norwich, Peterborough, Plymouth, Reading/Basingstoke, Southend/Chelmsford, Sussex Coast and Swindon, Gold will appear.

In some areas, it marks a return for Gold which was removed from a large number of local multiplexes in March 2014 after Smooth Radio took over the AM and DAB slots.

Chill is owned by Global but is not one of its core services, currently existing only on DAB in London. It has no news bulletins or commercials and plays A range of chill-out music from around the world.

X will also be removed from the London 1 multiplex to avoid duplication of the national service, which will technically replace TeamRock on D1, and will broadcast in mono at 80kbps.
