Minster FM owners team up with MuxCo in drive for North Yorkshire DAB

MuxCo has signed up The Local Radio Company (TLRC), owners of Minster, Stray and Yorkshire Coast Radio to submit an application for the local DAB digital radio multiplex serving North Yorkshire.

The actual licence area includes the eastern part of North Yorkshire, the city of York, and northern districts of the East Riding of Yorkshire.

As we predicted in June, the application means this will be the first time a TLRC station will feature on DAB digital radio.

The county's BBC service - BBC Radio York - will be carried on the multiplex.

MuxCo North Yorkshire Ltd plans to bring just two new services - Easy Radio and Traffic Radio to the area, when the multiplex launches in June 2009 [5th Jan 2009: MuxCo now propose "December 2009" as a revised launch date]. Yorkshire Coast Radio is planned to launch within two years of this date.

MuxCo North Yorkshire
