Chrysalis Radio will broadcast its London-based radio station Heart

106.2 FM on digital television this week.



The new digital service will go out to listeners through BSkyB’s Sky

platform, enabling Heart 106.2 FM to reach the three million people who

subscribe to the digital service across the UK.



Heart 106.2 will join Xfm, Capital Gold, Sky’s dedicated radio channel

Rock Nation and the Digital One channels on the digital national

multiplex.



Emap On Air will soon broadcast its Kiss Birmingham station on the Sky

digital service.



Heart 106.2 was launched in 1995 and attracts 1.6 million listeners on a

weekly basis.



Phil Riley, chief executive of the Chrysalis Group, said: ’It’s too

early to say what will happen to advertising sales now Heart.106.2 will

reach a national audience. The first step is to raise our profile in the

national market.



’Although you can already access Heart 106.2 on the internet, the

quality of sound is far improved via television and people are more

likely to tune in as the TV set is already in their living room.’
