Single applicant walks away with Bournemouth's DAB digital radio multiplex service licence

Now Digital Ltd, a subsidiary of GWR Group plc, has been awarded the local digital radio licence for the Bournemouth area. The sole applicant for the licence, Now Digital will enable well-known stations 2CR FM, Classic Gold Digital 828 and The Fire to be heard on digital radio by March next year.

New digital stations Saga (an adult-orientated easy listening music service) and The Rhythm, (classic soul music) will also be accessible by digital radio.

                          A rock station is also planned; there is speculation this will be The Storm, which plays modern rock music. The Storm can currently be heard on digital radio in Bristol and Bath, and in Cardiff and Newport.
