JACK fm returns to the South Coast on DAB

JACK fm and JACK 2 have appeared in text only on DAB in the Portsmouth area on the small-scale trial multiplex.

They have been added to the minimux along with Chris Country, an online station currently broadcasting on other small-scale DAB trails in Manchester and Cambridge.

The addition marks a return of JACK to the South Coast, after Celador ended its arrangement with OXIS Media to continue franchising the brand. JACK fm became SAM FM and covers the Portsmouth area from Southampton.

QLocal listeners will soon have both JACK FM, JACK 2 and SAM to choose from, although SAM was removed from DAB earlier this year.

OXIS Media told RadioToday they expect to start audio texts shortly and will release more details soon.
