NME Radio Stops Broadcasting on DAB Digital Radio

The publisher of NME magazine, IPC Media, has announced it is ending its business relationship with the company which has run NME Radio since the radio station launched two years ago. Following this announcement, from midnight on 12 July 2010 the station is no longer being broadcast on DAB digital radio.

DX Media launched NME Radio in June 2008, initially just on the internet and via satellite and cable television. The station launched on DAB digital radio in the London area a little over a year ago and nationally in December. DX Media ran the station under a licensing partnership with IPC Media with a mix of new and alternative music that complemented the magazine and its successful music website.

The Operations Director of Digital One, the company that runs the national commercial digital radio multiplex, confirmed the news. “We’ve been kept in touch with the changes at NME Radio and the ending of the relationship between IPC Media and DX Media. We’re sad for the people who worked for DX Media. The team put huge amounts of energy and creativity into a station that despite its limited budgets has won awards and critical plaudits.”

IPC Media has announced that NME Radio will continue to broadcast on the internet and there are no plans to discontinue the NME Radio brand. The station is also still available via some digital television systems.
