Wirral: New community station hopes to get DAB carriage


Months after the local community radio closed, there's hopes a new station for the Wirral will go live on DAB.

Radio Wirral has gone live online and via a mobile app, launched by former Wirral Radio editor Ian Kenyon, National Broadcasting School directors Tom Hunter and Jason Harborow and WRAP headteacher Peter Silcock.

The Wirral Globe reports the station will provide the area with music as well as commentary from Tranmere Rovers. The launch of Radio Wirral follows the collapse of the similarly titled Wirral Radio in March.

The station aims to be live on DAB from August, according to the report. The former Wirral Radio was carried on DAB via the Wrexham, Cheshire and Liverpool multiplex.
