BBC Northern Ireland has officially announced Radio Foyle’s availability on DAB (Digital Audio Broadcasting) radio.

The station is now permanently available on this platform to local digital radio listeners across Northern Ireland.

Peter Johnston, Director, BBC Northern Ireland, said: “BBC Radio Foyle does valuable work in serving our audiences in the north west and has been at the heart of many important stories and events over the past few years.

“It has long been a commitment of ours to bring BBC Radio Foyle to digital radio to make it even more widely available to listeners. I’m delighted today to be able to confirm that it now joins BBC Radio Ulster and BBC network stations on DAB.”

To access the station, listeners may need to rescan and retune their DAB receiver.

Earlier this year, BBC Northern Ireland unveiled modernisations to its Radio Foyle premises at Northland Road, including updated radio facilities and a new, purpose-built television studio.
