JACK Group announce new national DAB+ station

A brand new national station is on its way from the team who were behind launching the first JACK station in the UK. This brand new DAB+ national service will be “JACK with a twist” and will launch before Easter 2018. The JACK Group says the new station “will bring to the UK a brand-new format proposition that has never been heard anywhere in the world before”.

The new station will be joining Union JACK, JACK’s first national DAB+ station on the Sound Digital multiplex, which has already delivered over 100,000 weekly listeners.

Donnach O’Driscoll CEO of UNION JACK and Chairman of the JACK Group, said: “What a way to end the year. A brand new national radio station for the UK set to launch in 2018, this will be our second national station broadcasting from Oxford and just like we did with Absolute Radio, we will be bringing something new, fresh, unique and sexy to the UK radio scene. We don’t ever play safe,  it’s all about creating dynamic radio formats that attract new audiences. We will launch JACK (with a twist) before Easter 2018.”
