Christmas underway as Heart Xmas launches

Christmas is officially underway, as Heart Xmas has launched on Global Player and on a number of DAB multiplexes across the UK.

Global decided to launch the station early this year in response to listener demand for its Christmas playlists on Global Player.

Andy Everett, Managing Editor of Heart, said: “We’re thrilled to be bringing back the much-loved festive sister-station Heart Xmas even earlier than ever before. Listening to the Heart Xmas playlist on Global Player has boomed since the August Bank Holiday, so we’re launching the station more than two months before the big day, bringing our listeners the best non-stop festive tunes 24/7!”
