Kent's digital radio multiplex award confirmed

Dance music radio station Kiss and oldies station Saga Radio are to join the local DAB digital radio multiplex for Kent in time for Easter next year.

The DAB multiplex, which is due to launch in April 2004, will also carry a number of existing FM stations moving across to the digital platform.

The advertisement for the licence attracted just one operator - Capital Radio Digital. The full-line up of stations will be announced nearer the time, but the current list is as follows:
