Virgin Radio start date announced

A new version of Virgin Radio will launch on the new Sound Digital DAB multiplex after Easter, on Wednesday 30th March, featuring former Radio 1 presenter Edith Bowman at breakfast.

The rock station's presenter line-up also includes Jamie East, Kate Lawler, Matt Richardson and Tim Cocker.

The Virgin Radio name is being resurrected in the UK by UTV Media. The original Virgin Radio was rebranded Absolute Radio in 2008 following a change in the station's ownership.

This new incarnation of Virgin Radio will be available to around 75% of the UK via DAB, with further coverage online and via mobile apps.
