Owners of 80 stations want DAB switch halt

Radio Today reports that the owners of 80 commercial radio stations in
the UK have released a joint statement calling for the digital radio
switchover timetable to be set by consumers, not by the government

The group includes UTV Media, UKRD, Celador, Quidem, Media Sound
Holdings, Q Radio Network, CN Radio and Anglian Radio as well as a
number of independent stations. The stations they represent cover an
area from Shetland to Brighton and Norwich to Plymouth.

The statement from 13 local radio operators highlights that only 23%
of radio listening is via DAB and says that local commercial stations
are ‘severely disadvantaged’ by the switchover plans, as only 15% of
local radio listening is on DAB, according to data in the latest RAJAR
release (Q3 2013).

The group says ‘as many as 100 important local commercial radio
stations’ would either be ‘left stranded on FM’ at switchover or would
have to cut local programming to be able to afford DAB transmission
