Ahead of the launch of the new speech station Times Radio on Monday (29th June 2020), the station has now gone live on the SDL National DAB multiplex, reaching around 80 to 90% of the UK population.
Following the switch of Talk Radio to DAB+, Times Radio has taken the old normal DAB slot, so is broadcasting at 64 kbps mono.
Additionally, there has been a slight re-labeling of Talk Sport 2, which also made the switch to DAB+. The 8 digit station name is now ‘tkSP2’ rather ‘tkSPORT2’. On some DAB+ radios, the station now appears before the main Talk Sport station in the alphabetical station list.
