Announcement on UCB Extra and UCB Bible

Following a review on growth, UCB has announced that at the end of April, we will cease to broadcast two of our internet-based radio stations, UCB Extra and UCB Bible.

UCB is in a really exciting growth phase and we’re reviewing all that we do in line with our vision. With huge advances in technology, our listeners are increasingly requesting more quality content to be available via ‘On Demand’. With this in mind, some of the best elements of UCB Extra (including the weekly music Beats show) will now move to our national DAB station UCB UK and will feature as podcasts on a brand new multi-platform app which is soon to be released. There are also a great number of resources and websites available that allow people to listen to an audio version of the Bible with many more features than UCB Bible.

UCB will now be focusing on our three main radio stations; UCB UK, UCB Inspirational and UCB Gospel, each offering music for different tastes, from the top 10 in contemporary Christian music, through to Gospel and more reflective, worship-style music. The stations are available on various platforms including DAB, apps and online.

David Withers, Director of Broadcasting and Publications has said, ‘We believe that these changes will help us to continue to focus on the development of great content which will strengthen, inspire and encourage all of our listeners in their faith and discovery of God.’
