Affinity DAB leaves digital radio

Cambridge community radio DAB station Affinity has stopped broadcasting on the city’s digital radio multiplex and gone online-only.

The station only launched on DAB nine months ago, after a month-long RSL on FM.

Brian O’Reilly, Station Manager, told “At Affinity we have always endeavoured to serve our audience in the most appropriate manner. Our current series of DAB transmissions ceased on December 31st, and our primary delivery platform reverted to online for the time being.”

He added that the station wasn’t ruling out a return to DAB in the future. “In the meantime we will continue to explore a variety of platforms for the station as new opportunities arise,” he said.

Meanwhile, Affinity is to launch a new spring programme schedule and updated imaging during the first week of February. The station also says it will be doing more outside broadcasts to raise its profile and extra specialised programmes in the evening but more automation during daytimes.
