Ofcom announcement on DAB radio licences

Ofcom has today announced that the second national DAB radio multiplex has been awarded to Sound Digital, a media consortium of Arqiva, Bauer Media and UTV Media.

For UCB, this means that UCB Inspirational will be available nationally on DAB radio from a date (to be announced) in 2016.

David L’Herroux, UCB’s Chief Executive Officer said, “This is exciting news for the future of UCB Inspirational, but is also just the first step in a journey for us as a media organisation.

We’re so thankful to God for bringing us to this point, and to our supporters, who continue to stand with us as we take the next steps into this exciting future.”

UCB’s Director of Broadcasting, David Withers said, “UCB is thankful to God for the provision of the opportunity to go national, and also to dedicated listeners who continue to stand with the ministry in the work God is doing over the airwaves.”
