The Hits Radio goes on Emap's DAB digital radio multiplexes

Pop-and-dance music station The Hits is the latest radio station to be spawned across several local DAB digital radio multiplexes.

With a similar format to Smash Hits Radio, The Hits has made its appearance on the local DAB digital multiplexes serving Liverpool and Tyne & Wear. Launching around 16th November, the digital radio station has also been spotted on other Emap multiplexes broadcasting to Central Lancashire, South and West Yorkshire, Humberside and Teesside.

The Hits Radio
The station, which carries the duo JK and Joel at breakfast and takes some of its programming from Manchester-based Key 103, joins Smash Hits Radio with its formula of pop and mainstream dance music tracks.

To receive DAB digital radio stations in the UK, you need a DAB digital radio - a new type of radio that can receive digital radio broadcasts. For more information, read our guide to DAB digital radio and find out about the tuners available to buy.

Thanks both to Mark and Jonathan for spotting these stations on the Liverpool and Tyne & Wear multiplexes.
