One of the UK’s largest Muslim community radio stations, Unity FM, has emerged as a key member of the consortium that is applying for south Birmingham’s recently advertised small-scale DAB licence.
South Birmingham DAB Ltd. has been formed by Unity FM, Niocast Digital the operator of Manchester’s small-scale DAB trial and long-standing radio executive, Chris Hurst. The group brings together a unique combination of specialist skills, local knowledge and radio experience.
Unity FM CEO, Mohammed Shafiq, says the introduction of small-scale DAB is a perfect fit for the station’s own ambitions, “We now broadcast in all of Great Britain’s major towns and cities via a network of community radio partners. The new multiplex will open up exciting opportunities for existing and new services to reach half a million adults across England’s second city.”
