UK’s first all weather radio station to launch

Weather 24/7 Radio is set to launch on DAB+ next week, providing rolling weather information 24 hours a day.

Based in Portsmouth, it will feature up to date broadcasts on the current weather situation in the city as well as forecasts for the next 72 hours.

Weather 24/7 Radio is the brainchild of Ash Elford, Angel Radio’s Digital Development Manager. The service will be entirely automated using a bespoke playout system designed by developer David Gauld. Weather data will be supplied by the Met Office under licence.

Ash told Radio Today: “We Brits are obsessed with the weather. On local radio, weather is often relegated to the end of hourly news bulletins, but now in Portsmouth there will be local up to date forecasts available around the clock on DAB.”

The operating platform the station uses has been designed in such a way that it can be adapted for DAB multiplexes in other locations. Jingles for Weather 24/7 Radio have been produced by Ignite Jingles.

Weather 24/7 Radio is expected to launch in the next week.
