It’s been announced today, 29th January 2015, that children’s radio station Fun Kids has been included in Listen2Digital‘s application for the second national commercial multiplex.

The new multiplex will allow a selection of radio stations to broadcast nationwide for the first time on DAB Digital Radio. The licence, if successful, will mean Fun Kids will start broadcasting nationwide on DAB in Q2 2016.

This is the natural next step for the growth of Fun Kids following another fantastic year which has seen our on air audience increase by a third to 337,000 weekly listeners, a huge increase in our online traffic (250,000 MUUs) and a Station of the Year nomination at the Arqiva Commercial Radio Awards.

That’s not to mention exciting new programmes such as The Bin Weevils Show, partnerships with leading children’s brands and a series of successful live events at the UK’s biggest family festivals!

Joe Friel, Content and Partnerships Manager said “2015 is already proving to be a big year with exciting new programmes, partnerships and awards, it’s great to now be planning for an explosive 2016 too”.
