– Digital One: Radio transmitter operator Arqiva has confirmed it’s buying from Global Radio the 63 percent it did not own of the first DAB radio multiplex, Digital One.

Things went quiet after the acquisition, but Global now takes full control of the multiple – which carries Classic FM, talkSPORT, Absolute Radio and Planet Rock – as well as the multiplexes on which Global’s local stations operate. Ofcom last year awarded the second multiplex to 4 Digital Group, the stalled DAB consortium. Release.
