Ofcom urges Coventry local commercial and community radio stations to apply for new DAB licences

LOCAL commercial or community radio stations in Coventry can apply to Ofcom for one of the small-scale DAB multiplex licences which have become available.

The city is one of 25 areas across England, Northern Ireland, Wales and Scotland to be given the chance to take to the digital airwaves.

The small-scale DAB programme will enable the launch of 200 new multiplexes covering all four UK nations.

Ofcom expects the stations to broadcast a range of radio from grass-roots community services to specialist music stations, and services aimed at minority groups and other under-served audiences.

The closing date for applications is 5pm on April 25.
