‘New golden age’ of (digital) radio heralds review that could end FM

LNM Radio Network

A surge in digital listeners has brought about a “new golden age” of radio which could trigger the beginning of the end of FM listening as early as this year.

Radio use in the UK is now at record levels, with 48 million adults listening to more than 1bn hours each week in the last three months of 2016 year, according to industry monitor Rajar.

The renaissance has been fuelled by an increase in people accessing radio digitally, through devices such as tablets and smartphones, with the balance shifting so quickly that analysts predict digital listeners will become the majority within a year.
