Radio City wants to swap AM & FM services
Bauer Media has submitted a request to change Radio City 2 to FM and City Talk to AM in Liverpool. The two Format change requests say 105.9FM (currently home to City Talk) would become a revised Radio City 2 service whilst 1548AM (currently Radio City 2) would become Radio City Talk.
Radioplayer is to include extra content in its hybrid radio feed, allowing logos to be displayed on more radio sets. The data will then be picked up and displayed on radio sets which support the RadioDNS Hybrid Radio standard, such as internet radio devices with DAB and FM included.
