UKRD and MuxCo apply for DAB
Eagle Radio owner UKRD has teamed up with MuxCo to apply for the digital radio multiplex to cover Surrey and Northern Sussex.
MuxCo Surrey and Northern Sussex, the only applicant, is joint owned by UKRD and MuxCo Ltd and are proposing to carry seven services.
They are Traffic Radio, Shuffle, Eagle Radio, County Sound, Easy Radio, Mercury FM and a local outlet for new digital 'brand' NME Radio.
Shuffle is a new service offering music and listener-generated content for teenagers and young adults, whilst Traffic Radio will provide an up to date traffic and travel service similar to other regions. BBC Southern Counties Radio will also have space reserved.
MuxCo hope to have all services launched by July 2009, and will announce further services should they win.
