Radio 1 Expansion Rumours!

Recommended Posts

BBC planning biggest expansion of its national radio network since 2002.

New ‘spin-off’ streams in Sounds could include 24hr rolling news version of 5Live, and extensions of R1 and R2 with different playlists.

Full details in The Times, but their website is behind a paywall. I’m sure it won’t be long before someone else picks it up though...

Maybe we are going to get our Radio 1 and a half for those in their 30s / 40s like a DAB only 1xtra type thing but for pop from at least 10 years ago with people like Scott, Dev, Alice etc heading it

Seems a bit odd for the BBC. The 5live 24hr news service I get, Global have launched LBC News recently and both global and Bauer have non-stop music services now. But for me I just don’t get why the BBC would launch a new 24hr nonstop station on Sounds- In my opinion it’s not likely to happen.
