Folder Media’s MuxCo Applies for Suffolk Multiplex

Last week, Folder Media’s MuxCo subsidiary led an application to operate the Suffolk digital radio multiplex.

Folder Media’s involved with a number of digital radio multiplexes. We manage UTV’s network of six multiplexes alongside the eight MuxCo multiplexes.

MuxCo creates consortiums in all of the areas it broadcasts to, creating a stable operator to bring digital radio to hundreds of thousands of people in each area. In Suffolk we’re working with two successful local radio operators – Lincs FM Group and Town and Country Broadcasting. This means that as well as transmitting the three existing analogue stations (Heart, Smooth and BBC Radio Suffolk) on digital radio, our partners will be launching two new local services – Anglia and Suffolk First.

We are the only applicant for the licence and expect Ofcom to make a decision on the award in September.
