New national radio station?

Sound Digital reaches three quarters of the UK population via a network of DAB transmitters in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales. It’s the home of a wide range of stations, including the UK’s first national DAB+ channels – Magic Chilled, Union JACK, Fun Kids & Jazz FM.

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.

You can register an interest by emailing Please include your company’s full name and Companies House Registration Number (or equivalent). We’ll then contact you with a confidentiality agreement and more information.
