“BBC should lead the digital way”

Communications Minister Ed Vaizey has spoken about the future of radio, saying he wants broadcasters and manufacturers to work together to launch new stations, develop new functions and engage the public with great content.

And he confirmed previous reports that the switchover to DAB should only happen when the vast majority of listeners have voluntarily adopted digital radio over analogue.

Mr Vaizey said the BBC had a “key” role to play.

He hoped that listeners would appreciate multi-channel national radio in the same way that TV viewers have enjoyed an explosion of channels: “If I were to suggest today that TV viewers should go back to five main channels, there would be outrage.

“I hope in a few years time, when we approach switchover, radio listeners will see the benefits of multi-channel national radio in exactly the same way that television viewers have seen such benefits.

“Digital radio is the opportunity to strengthen, to innovate, and to engage.”

Mr Vaizey said there was no “cast-iron commitment” to pinpointing a date for digital switchover at this stage, despite the outgoing Labour government giving a target date of 2015.

“That means a digital radio switchover in 2015 remains a target we aspire to, but for which a lot more work needs to be done before we can make it a cast-iron commitment.”

He added that FM would not become a “ghetto” and would be integrated with digital stations so listeners could switch “seamlessly”.

Earlier today, Radio Futurologist James Cridland posted a blog suggesting the future should be multi-platform.

A Digital Radio Action Plan looking at the impact of switchover was also published today.

BBC to launch 61 new DAB TXs

Tim Davie, BBC Director of Audio and Music, has announced a range of measures to support DAB – including the addition of 61 new transmitters.

Coverage will be significantly increased to take the BBC’s in-home coverage to at least 92 percent by mid-2011, improve reception on the UK’s motorway network and match FM within the M25.

Mr Davie outlined the BBC’s actions at the Intellect Consumer Electronics Conference and also spoke about ways to improve the impact of the BBC’s digital portfolio and an increase in marketing spend.

Tim Davie said: “Today’s announcements mean that more licence fee payers will have access to the full range of BBC services and enjoy the benefits of digital radio.”

The BBC’s new 61 DAB transmitters, which will be installed by the middle of next year will:

– increase the BBC’s in-home coverage to at least 92% of the UK population (from approx 85% currently)

– provide good in-car coverage for around 93% of the UK’s motorway network (from 83% today)

– include four new transmitters to achieve FM-equivalent coverage level of around 99% population and road coverage within the M25 (from around 89% today).

The BBC will also evaluate ways it may find funding to fill in all of the major gaps in UK motorway coverage to broadly match current FM stereo coverage.

Plans to improve the impact of the BBC’s digital radio portfolio include using the proposed relaunch of Radio 7 as Radio 4 Extra as an example of how closer links to analogue networks and new editorial ideas could lead to a stronger portfolio.

The expertise of BBC Research & Development will also be offered to work with the sector to tackle technical issues such as aftermarket in-car DAB radios.

Mr Davie also talked about increasing funding in marketing for digital radio platforms such as DAB, DTV and online, which included committing to running at least two large-scale campaigns supporting digital radio each year, increasing as and when switchover approaches and ensuring that digital-only services receive a bigger share of total marketing activity.

Radio Player – which is due to launch later this year as a single online console that will offer all UK radio in one place – was also touched upon with the promise of more details in the coming weeks.

Digital switchover continues

Ed Vaizey, Minister for Culture, Communications and Creative Industries, will today confirm the new Government’s plan to push ahead with DAB.

He will outline details of the Digital Radio Action Plan, which will include better coverage, more marketing and a help scheme, with 2015 remaining a switchover target date.

But despite calls from listeners and parts of the industry to abandon the move to switch off analogue radio, the Coalition will go ahead with the digital switchover and leave millions of people unable to listen to stations currently broadcasting on FM.

The Minster will announce details of the plan later today, which will include:

  • Agreeing a coverage plan for building DAB coverage to match FM

  • The development of a strategic marketing and communications plan

Patrick Kielty is to fill the three month gap between Jonathan Ross leaving and Graham Norton starting on Radio 2.

The comedian will host 10am – 1pm from the end of this month until the start of October. Wossy’s final show will be on 17th July, a day after he finishes his Friday chat show on BBC1.

Keilty has been on Radio 2 twice before, presenting a show in January and April. The Mirror reports that insiders are saying he could land his own show if he proves to be popular.

Patrcik said: “I’m delighted to be sharing Saturday mornings with the listeners of Radio 2. I’ve had great craic making my shows earlier this year and I’m really looking forward to kickstarting the weekend on the wireless this summer.”

Lewis Carnie, head of programmes at Radio 2 and 6 Music, said: “It’s always exciting to introduce new regular voices to the schedule, and I’m delighted that Patrick will have a lengthy stint on the network.”

REACTION

Ford Ennals, Chief Executive, Digital Radio UK, said: “We welcome confirmation of the new Government’s strong support for digital radio and the publication of the Joint Industry and Government Action Plan. It gives us the certainty we need that radio has a digital future. The focus on consumers, coverage and cars is vital and Digital Radio UK looks forward to working with Government and industry to ensure the UK is ready for digital radio switchover.”

Andrew Harrison, Chief Executive, RadioCentre, said: “We are delighted that the new Government has recognised the benefits that digital radio brings for listeners. Certainty around the roadmap to digital radio switchover will help all stations within the commercial sector to invest in the future, with larger stations migrating solely to the digital platform, while smaller stations continue broadcasting on FM.”

Tim Davie, Director of Audio and Music, BBC, said: “We welcome the Government’s commitment to radio’s digital future and the importance they have placed on the listener in any future switchover. The BBC will, along with Digital Radio UK, work closely with Government and the rest of the radio sector to deliver the Action Plan.”

Paul Eaton, Director of Radio at Arqiva, said: “This clear statement from Government will help industry to ensure that digital radio has an exciting future alongside other digital technologies.”
