From Monday 12 September, digital radio listeners were able to tune into one more national radio station – Capital UK.

It becomes the 7th national DAB digital radio service available from Global Radio, the UK’s largest commercial radio group. It joins sister service Capital Xtra, as well as Global’s other brands such as Classic FM, LBC and Smooth Extra. Over the past year Global has launched Radio X and Heart extra as national stations.

This is the latest step in delivering on the commitments previously made by founder and executive president of Global, Ashley Tabor “We are continuing to invest in digital radio with new stations, brand expansion and transmission coverage expansion.”

Commenting on the launch, a spokesperson for Global, Eleanor Conroy, said “On air, on screen, online, on stage and now… on everywhere! Yes, we’re delighted to confirm Capital UK is indeed now on Digital One!”

The launch brings to 13 the total number of radio services broadcasting on the first national commercial network.

DAB digital radio listeners may need to retune their radios in order to pick up the new station.
