GB News plans new radio service

GB News, which launched its new television and digital service on Sunday 13th July, has announced plans to launch a national radio service as early as next month and is in the final stages of completing a deal with Arqiva to secure spectrum on the Digital One national multiplex, paving the way to broadcast GB News Radio across the UK.

GB News has already moved to gain the necessary regulatory approvals from Ofcom for the radio service.

GB News’ Chief Executive Officer Angelos Frangopoulos, said: “GB News is a digital start‐up designed to bring greater plurality of voices in UK media so we’re passionate about delivering our programmes on every platform we can, including live DAB digital radio.”

“It’s a considerable challenge to expand into radio so quickly but this opportunity is too great to miss. It means we can serve more people by giving them the choice to tune in to us anywhere, any time.”

GB News is available on Freeview channel 236, YouView 236, Sky HD 515, Virgin Media HD 626 and Freesat 216.
