Radio Yorkshire to stop broadcasting on DAB
Radio Yorkshire is to cease broadcasting on DAB Digital Radio on 30 November 2017.
The music and sport station, which launched in 2014 and broadcasts Leeds United and Rugby League commentary, will switch off it’s connection to transmitters in the early hours of Thursday morning.
Radio Yorkshire will continue to broadcast online following the DAB switch off.
Director of Broadcasting Sam Brydges said “As an independent DAB only station we have faced many issues with the changing landscape in Yorkshire. This includes not being able to broadcast on DAB directly into Leeds, a key area for the business, for 14 months of our three years on-air.”
“The style of content we create means a lot of our programming is now available in-vision live or on-demand online with ever-growing numbers. I would like to thank the amazing staff who have given their all to Radio Yorkshire and the listeners for their loyalty and contribution to a unique DAB station.”
