UK rolling news radio service set to launch

A radio station offering a 10-minute rolling news service for the UK is set to launch on DAB digital radio.

News Radio UK will provide news, sport, business, showbiz, weather and travel news on a 10 minute loop 24 hours a day when it launches on October 10th at 10am.

The content is being provided by Radio NewsHub, working in partnership with RadioToday and Radio Response. Travel news will be updated throughout the day and provided by INRIX.

Jamie Fletcher, Director of Radio NewsHub: “We’re really excited to be part of this brand new radio station. Radio NewsHub already provides bulletins to radio stations around the world – and we can’t wait to be part of a brand new rolling news service that the UK has lacked for sometime.”

David Harber from Radio Response added: “We are constructing the future of delivering response from radio advertising by making ad messages attributable. Unsurprisingly, there’s been a keen amount of interest in our plans from major brands who wish to align themselves with our exciting plans.”

The all-speech station will launch at 10am, October 10th, 2016 at and on DAB, initially on the Portsmouth minimux.

RadioToday’s managing editor Roy Martin explains more: “The subject of news has been more prominent than ever over the last few months, but a simple format of rolling news isn’t available from any of the current national broadcasters. News Radio UK will be filling that gap in the market, working towards launching on a national terrestrial platform.

“The station aims to provide a snapshot of the day’s news whenever you listen, with the one-minute round-ups updated all day, every day.”
