Why Manchester? Why not?! 

A million residents and nearly 100,000 students.

Manchester is also home to modern vegetarianism; league football; women’s equality; the first computer and the splitting of the atom. 

And if that’s not enough, the city’s proud heritage includes 25 Nobel prize winners; and dozens of bands and performers that have and continue to influence the sounds of today.

This showcases Manchester as a pre-eminent regional beacon of culture, arts, science, business and diversity.

Broadcasting from the new Manchester and Salford DAB radio multiplex will offer your radio service extensive coverage right across one to the UK’s most exciting cities.

Our new system of registering will be going live soon, but here is some information for radio services interested in having their service carried on Manchester DAB

Over the coming months we will renew contact with the radio services who signed outline carriage agreements with us or expressed interest in taking carriage on Manchester DAB.

Next, we will make contact with the operators of radio services who, between September 2021 and now, expressed interest in taking carriage on our multiplex.

Following this, we will contact those who have approached us more recently, expressing interest in having their services carried.

We will shortly publish our rates along with more details about how to apply.
