UCB inks deal with MXR Limited to extend reach of Christian radio in England and Wales 
United Christian Broadcasters Limited (UCB) has secured DAB Digital radio capacity on MXR, covering five major regions and potentially reaching another 17.6 million people with the Gospel.

UCB is to extend its DAB Digital radio broadcasting reach across the country with the addition of five regions which, with its existing London and Stoke licences, will mean that virtually all major cities in England and Wales will be able to hear Christian radio, most of them for the first time.

UCB will commence broadcasting in the new regions on October 1st 2007.  MXR Limited, which operates the five DAB Digital radio networks, invited UCB to apply for access to their North East, North West, Yorkshire, West Midlands and Severn Estuary regions in March.  UCB is actually launching two radio stations across the five regions: UCB UK and UCB Inspirational. 

Towns and cities able to receive UCB’s DAB Digital radio broadcasts for the first time will include Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Bradford, Leeds, Sheffield, Hull, Lincoln, Liverpool, Manchester, Birmingham, Coventry, Swansea, Cardiff, Bristol and Bath.

Well done to UCB!  Please continue to pray for Premier’s development too.
