Sound Digital looks for two new DAB+ stations
Sound Digital is advertising for anyone wanting to run a national DAB+ radio station to get in touch.
The company, owned by Arqiva, Bauer and Wireless Group, says it has space available since Awesome Radio was removed from the SDL multiplex recently.
There are already four DAB+ channels on the mux; Magic Chilled, Union JACK, Fun Kids & Jazz FM.
Sound Digital says: “We’re looking for people interested in running a new national DAB+ station. You’ll need a strong business plan, a clear market proposition and ideas about how you’ll connect with listeners. In total, we are able to consider bids for two DAB+ stereo channels. Previously the capacity was used for Awesome Radio, a music station with particular appeal for British Muslims, which came off air last month.”
